Volleyball Earns AVCA Team Academic Award For Fifth Straight Year

Rice earned the AVCA Team Academic Award for the fifth straight year

Aug. 7, 2013

For the fifth consecutive season, Rice Volleyball received the Team Academic Award from the AVCA. The award honor's Rice's team GPA during the 2012-13 school year.

The Owls had two C-USA All-Academic selections in 2012, with Megan Murphy and Laurie McNamara taking home those honors. McNamara also picked up CoSIDA Captial One Academic All-District honors.

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.

Rice has received the award every year since the 2008-09 school year. The Owls open the season on Aug. 30 at Fresno State.
