Women's Volleyball: Mount Union Wins USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award For 12th Straight Year

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The United States Marine Corps (USMC) and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced that the University of Mount Union has earned USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award for the 2019-2020 season.

"Coaches have the most influence during difficult times," said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer. "Keeping student-athletes focused on their academic success when their volleyball identity was suddenly gone is leadership worth celebrating!"

The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale.

The Purple Raiders have now won the award for 12 consecutive seasons and is one of only 25 programs to have a double-digit streak of years winning the award.

Mount Union posted a 20-10 record in 2019.
