’14-15 RHS Varsity Volleyball Earns AVCA Team Academic Award

14-15 team academic






The 2014-15 RHS varsity volleyball team has earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s Team Academic Award for their accomplishments in the classroom throughout the academic year. This is the 3rd consecutive year the program 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 2014-15 team GPA was an outstanding 3.69 (4.0 scale), well beyond the 3.30 minimum.

The team was one of over 200 High School programs in the United States to receive the AVCA Team Academic Award, the only RISD team and the only District 10-6A team to receive this prestigious award.
