CCSU Women's Volleyball Earns AVCA Academic Award
Bookmark and Share
CCSU Women's Volleyball
New Britain, CT -- The Central Connecticut volleyball team earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for its performance in the classroom throughout the 2011-12 school year.  The Blue Devils earned the award for the sixth consecutive year by maintaining a cumulative grade point average above 3.30 for both semesters.

"I am proud of the academic achievements of our team," head coach Linda Sagnelli said.  "It is an honor to receive the AVCA Team Academic Award.  The student-athletes have a high level of commitment in the classroom and take great pride in academic excellence."

In all, 535 volleyball programs, ranging from high school to NCAA Division I, earned the academic award this year.  Of that total, 103 Division I programs received the honor, including five institutions from the Northeast Conference.

In a record setting year for the AVCA, the number of overall and Division I recipients were both all-time highs for an award that has been issued every year since its inception following the 1992-93 academic year.

"The 533 coaches whose teams won this academic award understand the value of both playing to win and winning through play. A well-deserved congratulations to each team and coach," AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer said.

The Blue Devils were also successful on the court in 2011, returning to the NEC Tournament for the ninth consecutive year.

The 2012 season will open on August 24, when the Blue Devils begin play at the West Virginia Mountaineer Invitational.
