LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's volleyball team earned a place on the 2019-20 United States Marine Corps (USMC)/ American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award list. The honor is the program's fourth all-time since the award was initiated in 1992-93.
To meet the rigorous criteria for the accolade, volleyball programs must maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale. A total of 231 Division III teams made the list, a record for the award.
F&M has reached 12 straight Centennial Conference (CC) tournaments – a streak unmatched by any CC opponent – and has produced a winning record in 10 out of the previous 11 seasons.
