The Crimson, coming off a fifth-straight EIVA Tournament appearance, has been recognized for its academic accomplishments for a fifth-straight year (Zack Williamson).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's volleyball team has received the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for a fifth straight year, and is one of just 11 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 764 programs received the award for this past season.
The Crimson has now received the award each of the last five years and seven times in the last eight. Harvard has also been trending upward on the court, qualifying for the EIVA Tournament five-straight years while posting a winning record in each campaign. The Crimson will return eight letterwinners to the court for the 2017 season, including All-EIVA selections Marko Kostich and Casey White.
