1993 NCAA Div. III champions
PELLA — For the third straight year, Central College is on the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s Top 25 Team Honor Roll.
Under second-year coach Mike Jacobsma, the Dutch rank 21st with a combined team grade point average of 3.483 during 2012-13. The Dutch were 20th the previous two years, although this year’s GPA climbed from a 3.463 mark in 2011-12. Central has cracked the honor roll seven times since 1997, finishing second in the U.S. in 2000, third in 1997 and fifth in 1999.
Central earlier had four players named to the academic all-Iowa Conference squad.
Gustavus Adolphus (Minn.) ranked No. 1 in Division III at 3.600. Central was among three Iowa schools in the rankings and one of just two that was in last year’s rankings as well. Simpson ranks fifth at 3.559 with Wartburg 18th at 3.489.
