Highest Team GPAs for Fall Season 

By Jason Lieser

It is always impressive when athletes equal or exceed their on-field success by scoring in the classroom. This month the FHSAA recognized all fall sports teams with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, and 28 teams from this area achieved that feat.


St. Andrew’s produced six of those teams, including football. The only other football team to register a collective 3.0 or better was Seminole Ridge. Only 25 football teams in the state managed to hit that mark, led by Tampa’s Berkeley Prep at 3.534.

South Fork, Park Vista, Jensen Beach, Seminole Ridge and Palm Beach Central are the only area public schools with teams on this list.

Here are this area’s highest team GPAs from the fall season:

1. Lake Worth Christian (B-Cross Country) – 3.765

2. John Carroll (G-Cross Country) – 3.694

3. John Carroll (G-Volleyball) – 3.682
