Saturday, July 21, 2012
For the third consecutive year, the Calvin women’s volleyball team has received the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award. The award is given to all collegiate institutions that post a cumulative team grade point average of 3.30 or above.
The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors 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.
During the year, Calvin had two individuals named Capital One Academic All-Americans as senior Rebecca Kamp and junior Lizzie Kamp were both so honored.
Under the direction of head coach Amber Warners, Calvin also had a big year on the volleyball court as the Knights were ranked number-one throughout the regular season and finished the year with an overall record of 33-1.
