RHS Volleyball has raised over $12,000 since 2010, highlighted by almost $5000 in 2012:
The 2013-14 RHS varsity volleyball team has earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s Team Academic Award for their accomplishments in the classroom throughout the 2013-14 academic year. This is the 2nd consecutive year the team has been honored with this award.
This award is given by the AVCA annually to honor 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 or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale. The 2013-14 team GPA was an outstanding 3.65 (4.0 scale), well beyond the 3.30 minimum.
The Eagles were one of 227 High School programs to receive the AVCA Team Academic Award, the only RISD team and the only District 10-6A team to receive this prestigious award.
