Women's Volleyball Recognized with AVCA Team Academic Award

The Crimson has received the AVCA Team Academic Award for the sixth straight year (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's volleyball team has been recognized for its work in the classroom with the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 season.

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 623 programs received the award for this past season, including a record 134 Div. I teams.

The Crimson, which has earned the accolade following each of the last six seasons, is coming off an impressive 14-9 campaign which included a 9-5 mark against the Ivy League, good for second place. 11 letterwinners, including four All-Ivy performers, will return to the court in 2014 alongside five newcomers.
