GW Volleyball Honored With AVCA Team Academic Award
Colonials Demonstrate Excellence in the Classroom During 2012-13 Academic Year
Aug. 8, 2013
LEXINGTON, Ky. - On the eve of reporting for training camp, the George Washington volleyball team was honored with the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 academic year.
The award honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that display excellence in the classroom by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average.
"Academic success is a huge priority for us at GW and I am proud of this team for balancing the demands of being student-athletes with their responsibilities in the classroom," said Head Coach Amanda Ault.
A total of 622 teams across NCAA Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, along with two- and four-year colleges and high schools earned the honor, which breaks the previous record of 536 set in 2011-12.
Two members of the 2012-13 team, Lauren Whyte and Candace Silva-Martin, were named to the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team at the conclusion of last season, while seven members of the team were recognized on the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the Spring 2013 semester.
The Colonials report for preseason on Aug. 9 and will practice twice a day leading up to the annual Buff & Blue Scrimmage on Aug. 24.
GW opens the season on Aug. 30 against Maryland at the Charles E. Smith Center as part of the GW Invitational.
