Seward Spikers Earn Fifth Straight AVCA Award
07/22/2011

 For the 5th time in five years, the Seward County
Volleyball team has placed themselves in the nation's elite in the
classroom, receiving the distinguished AVCA Academic Team Award again
this season.  The Lady Saints join a record crowd which received the
award throughout a number of different classifications but are one of
just 12 two year programs to be named to the list. 

                The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic
year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed
excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at
least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale or a
4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale. 

                "A hearty congratulations to all the volleyball coaches
whose teams won the 2011 AVCA Team Academic Award," said AVCA Executive
Director, Kathy DeBoer. "Teams do not succeed in the classroom by
accident any more so than they do on the court.  The same coach who
taught them volleyball skills cared enough about their academic
achievement to gather their grades, calculate their GPA, and submit a
nomination on their behalf. In doing so, these coaches sent a clear
message that classroom success is just as important as court success.
All involved should celebrate this award!"
