WSC volleyball earns 16th consecutive academic honor
The Wayne State volleyball team was awarded the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award earlier this week.
The Wildcat volleyball team recorded a cumulative grade-point average of 3.85 during the 2017-18 academic school year to earn the team academic honor.
The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, is celebrating the 26th year and honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed academic excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scaled or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.
Wayne State is one of 128 schools in NCAA Div. II to earn the award and one of 13 schools from the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference to receive the honor. WSC is the lone program in the NCAA Div. II to have received the academic honor for a minimum of 16 consecutive years and has received the honor every year since 2002).
The Wildcats went 19-12 last year and finished eighth in the NSIC with a 12-8 league mark, losing to eventual national champion Concordia-St. Paul in the NSIC Tournament in five sets (18-25, 25-13, 23-25, 25-20, 15-12).
