[AWARDS] For the sixth straight year, the Central Michigan women's program claimed the nation's top grade-point average.

The  Chippewas finished the 2009-10 academic year with a cumulative grade point average of 3.76, their highest GPA in program history. They earned GPAs of 3.73 in 2009, 3.70 in 2008, 3.61 in 2007, 3.73 in 2006 and 3.62 in 2005.

All 17 players that were a part of the 2009-10 academic year and a part of the 2010 roster maintained grade point averages of 3.4 or higher, with sophomores Bailey Brandon and Stefanie Turner boasting perfect 4.0 GPAs.

Central Michigan, which won its second straight Mid-American championship, was one of 436 women's programs honored by the NSCAA with the Team Academic, given to any team that post a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.

"I am extraordinarily proud to be associated with this committed group of young women," CMU coach Tom Anagnost said. "Earning the highest GPA in the country solidifies the dedication to academic excellence which is a CMU women’s soccer player. These high marks are a testament to their character and commitment to doing better every day in the classroom. Consistently earning the highest GPA in the country for all divisions and both genders in the last six years is truly unbelievable. This honor, combined with being back-to-back regular season and tournament champions, exemplifies and embodies the ideal student-athlete. These student-athletes are role models for young female soccer players across the country."
