The Cardinals checked in at No. 21 in the national rankings, which include schools from across all divisions. Ball State’s team GPA for the 2012-13 academic year was 3.612.

Lee University claimed its third straight WGCA All-Scholar Team GPA Award on Wednesday, posting a team GPA of 3.955 to lead the country.
