The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced that Kellenberg Memorial’s girls varsity volleyball team has been named a recipient of the AVCA Team Academic Award.
The award honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that display excellence on the court and in the classroom by maintaining a 3.30 out of 4.00 or an 82% cumulative team grade-point average for the academic school year. An impressive 237 high schools and 399 collegiate squads throughout the United States were lauded this season.
“It is such a wonderful honor to be recognized by the top organization in girls volleyball for what our players do off the court. Our team GPA surpassed the required cumulative average by six additional points, a true testament to our players’ pursuit of excellence and our administration and faculty’s support for all student-athletes,” varsity coach Cathy von Schoenermarck observed.
The Lady Firebirds open their 2015 season at home on Thursday, September 10th, against Our Lady of Mercy.
