Mount Union Volleyball Receives AVCA Team Academic Award

ALLIANCE, Ohio -- Mount Union's volleyball team has been selected as a recipient of the 2010-11 American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award. The award honors teams who have matched their dedication to the sport of volleyball with excellence in the classroom, which is displayed by maintaining a cumulative team grade-point-average of 3.30 or better. Only 88 Division III womens' volleyball teams -- and 481 across all divisions -- received this award. This marks the third consecutive year that the Purple Raiders have been honored by the AVCA.

Current senior Julie Radigan (Olmsted Falls/Olmsted Falls) was named to the Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference team for the 2010-11 school year. Graduates Monica Hupertz (Willoughby Hills/Beaumont) and Roni Schroeder (Shelby/Shelby) were honorable mentions.
