The Worcester State University Women’s Volleyball program has been named, for sixth consecutive year in a row, a recipient of the United States Marine Corps and American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for their academic success during the 2022-23 season.

The United States Marine Corps and the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced today that Worcester State was one of 1,333 collegiate and high school volleyball teams to have earned the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award this season. This marks an all-time record number of programs honored for their academic achievements. The award, initiated in the 1992–93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale or 4.1 on a 5.0 scale.

“The commitment our coaches make to help their student-athletes pursue the best versions of themselves is evident in the academic accomplishments highlighted today.” said AVCA CEO Jaime Gordon. “Achievement on the court has always been closely tied to success in the classroom which is reflected by the number of championship programs honored.”

This past winter additionally saw the Women’s Volleyball team have their entire team of 14 student-athletes selected the MASCAC Fall/Winter All-Academic Team.
