Crusaders Claim 2015 AVCA Team Academic Award

valpo-volleyball-avca-award-2015The Valparaiso University volleyball program received the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2014-15 academic year, as announced by the AVCA this week. It marks the 10th time in the last 12 seasons that the Crusaders have earned the award.

The honor is given to college and high school teams that displayed excellence in the classroom by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale. The nominating head coaches must be AVCA members. Valpo was one of 146 Division I programs to be so honored this season.

The Crusaders continued to be proficient in the classroom while also maintaining their on-court success during the 2014-15 season. On the court last year, Valpo won 25 matches, including starting the season 14-1 – the best start to a campaign in program history – and finished in third place in the Horizon League standings. The Crusaders have now won at least 20 matches in each of the last 13 seasons, including all 10 years they have earned the AVCA Team Academic Award, and own a 250-88 (.740) record in the 10 years in which the program has earned the academic honor from the AVCA.

Valparaiso was one of five current Horizon League institutions to earn the honor for the 2014-15 campaign.
