NTCA has been a driving force in the advancement of NCAA Women’s Bowling. One of the main focuses for the NTCA is to provide coaches and institutions with the education necessary to grow the sport. The NTCA sponsors the Coaches Poll, which is the official poll for ranking the 20 best NCAA women’s bowling teams in the nation.
ASU Lady Hornets bowling team tied with Sam Houston University. When it comes to being ranked in top for GPA the Lady Hornets are familiar with these rankings.
Head Bowling Coach Andrew Chatmon said, “As before when we were in 2nd, I was extremely proud of the ladies on our team, they take great pride in their academics and this goes to acknowledge their hard work and dedication to academics, after all they are student-athletes.”
All five members of the ASU’s bowling team were selected to the 2012-2013 All Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Academic team for having a 3.68 overall GPA.
