The Crimson has been recognized for its academic accomplishments after reaching the EIVA Tournament for a fourth straight year (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's volleyball team has received the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for a fourth straight year, and is one of just seven men's programs in the country to earn the distinction.
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. A record 752 programs received the award for this past season.
The Crimson, which has now received the award each of the last four years and six times in the last seven, finished the 2015 regular season tied for second place in the EIVA and reached the conference tournament for a fourth straight time. Nine letterwinners will return to the court this season, including first team All-EIVA selection Branden Clemens.
