The basketball court is not the only place the Lady Rams succeeded this season. Theyâ€™re also doing quite well in the classroom. Rattanâ€™s varsity girls basketball team was recognized as the academic state champions for Class 2A. The ceremony took place on championship Saturday March 10 at State Fair Arena. Rattan boasted a GPA of 3.96 for the first semester. That honor shouldnâ€™t come as much of a surprise, though. The Lady Rams were also named academic state champions for the spring 2011 slow-pitch softball season and 2011 fall fast-pitch season.
