For the THIRD straight year, the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has named the Kellenberg Memorial girls varsity volleyball team as a recipient of the AVCA Team Academic Award. This award honors high school volleyball teams that are outstanding both on the court and in the classroom. Teams are recognized for maintaining a 3.30 out of 4.00 or an 87% cumulative team GPA for an academic school year.
“Our coaching staff is absolutely thrilled that the athletes in the Kellenberg volleyball program continually strive for excellence. As a matter of fact, the 2016 squad surpassed AVCA’s required GPA by an additional FOUR points (91% team average), a true testament to their motivation level and attention to detail,” commented Coach Cathy von Schoenermarck.
