WASHINGTON – The Georgetown University volleyball team was one of a record 676 schools to earn the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 season. The 676 schools recognized breaks the previous year's total of 623 and sets a new all-time high for this award. 

The award, which was initiated during 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 on a 5.0 scale.

Georgetown posted a cumulative team grade-point average of 3.508 under the direction of Head Coach Arlisa Williams. It is the fourth-consecutive year the Hoyas have earned the AVCA Team Academic Award, and fifth time under Williams.

"To earn this recognition for a fourth-straight year is a true testament to the hard work and dedication that our student-athletes put toward their academics," Williams said. "I am extremely proud that our student-athletes understand the commitment that needs to be made to excel in the classroom, on the court and in our community."

On Monday, the volleyball team earned a 2013-14 BIG EAST Team Academic Excellence Award, given to the team with the highest collective grade-point average in each conference sport, for the second-consecutive year. The squad also had 13 student-athletes named to last week’s BIG EAST All-Academic Team.

The Hoyas open the 2014 season on the evening of Friday, Aug. 29 at American University as part of the D.C. Challenge. The Blue & Gray will also take on George Mason and Howard, with both matches being played at George Mason, on Saturday, Aug. 30.
