Based on nominations from Arizona coaches and members of the community, Pros2Preps compiled a list of players that are student-athletes both on court and in the classroom. To be considered, students must have a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA. The team is then compiled taking into effect academic and athletic achievements.
The six student-athletes on the boys and girls All-Academic teams were tied for the most by any Phoenix-area school and were the most by any school in the East Valley.
