LEXINGTON, Ky. – The United States Marine Corps and American Volleyball Coaches Association announced the presence of the Guilford College women's volleyball team on the 2020-21 USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award list that was announced on Monday afternoon.
In order for a team to be eligible for this honor they must compete at either the collegiate or high school level and must exude excellence in the classroom, maintaining at least a cumulative team grade-point average of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale throughout the school year.
This year's list features 1,275 recipients, just 233 NCAA Division III schools. Guilford was just one of six Old Dominion Athletic Conference members to be honored.
No stranger to this honor, the squad was also acknowledged for its academic achievements following the 2019-20 academic year.
Be sure to stay tuned as the Quakers will be releasing their 2021 competition schedule later this week.
