Baseball and Softball Players Earn THSCA Academic All-State Recognition

Cypress, TX (June 14, 2016) Ten CFISD softball players and three baseball players were named to the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) / Texas Army National Guard 2015-2016 Academic All-State teams.

To be nominated for the Academic All-State team, a student must be:

  • an athlete, student trainer or manager in good standing with the team;
  • of good moral character;
  • a senior; and
  • have an overall grade point average of 92 or above (including courses from grades 9-11 and courses completed from grade 12). Weighted GPAs are accepted.

When reviewing the nominations, the THSCA considers each student’s GPA, class rank, SAT and/or ACT score. The students receive points based on each criteria. The total number of points they receive determines which team they are placed on. The classification of the school is not a factor, and no limit is made on the number of players who can make a team.
