The way Wauwatosa East/West and Waukesha Catholic Memorial loaded up individual honorees on the Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin academic all-state team, it should be no surprise that the two programs struck gold this week when it came time for the GCAW to honor it academic all-state teams.
Wauwatosa East/West and Catholic Memorial earned gold medals in Division 1 and 2, respectively, for their academic prowess. The 10th annual GCAW team awards recognize the programs with the highest team grade-point average using GPAs of the five girls on the roster for the 2020 WIAA regionals.
