Men’s Volleyball Earns AVCA Team Academic Award

The men's volleyball team earned its second straight AVCA Team Academic Award (Gil Talbot).

For the second straight year, the Harvard men’s volleyball team has received the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award. Harvard is one of just two Division I men’s programs to receive the award as Stanford also earned team academic accolades.

In all, 450 teams from eight collegiate and high school divisions earned recognition from the AVCA, breaking the previous record of 409 team from a year ago.  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.
