Prep notes: 12 Wisconsin teams earn NSCAA Team Academic Award
By ERIC ANDERSON
The boys and girls teams from Fond du Lac, Kenosha Christian Life and Madison Memorial each had grade-point averages of 3.25 or better to claim the honor. All three schools had the same coach for both teams – Greg Winkler at Fond du Lac, Alan Krass at Kenosha Christian Life and Ben Voss at Madison Memorial. Winkler has since retired from Fond du Lac and relocated to Florida.
A total of 329 teams (194 girls and 135 boys) across the country earned the NSCAA Team Academic Award, including 12 state teams – six boys and six girls sides. WIAA Division 3 state girls champion Waukesha Catholic Memorial posted the top GPA among Wisconsin teams with a 3.81, while Fond du Lac led the boys with a 3.69.
