FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS
The American Volleyball Coaches
Association acknowledged Trinity's 2002 women's volleyball team for its
excellence in the classroom by selecting the Trolls as one of its Team
Academic Award winners.
The AVCA honors high school
and college volleyball teams throughout the United States who have combined
athletic achievement with academic success. This year, 205 such programs
nationwide received the award, each of them with cumulative grade-point
averages of 3.3 or better.
"We stress the priority of
academics, and it's gratifying that our athletes take their studies seriously,"
said coach Sue Gasperec. "There is a greater sense of affirmation that
comes from the AVCA recognizing the time and diligence our players invest
to maintain their good grades."
