LEXINGTON, Ky. — The American Volleyball Coaches Association announced that Bates College’s 2005 volleyball team was one of 155 colleges to earn the Game Plan/AVCA Team Academic Award for the 2005-2006 season.
The Bobcats were one of only two NESCAC teams to receive the award, along with Middlebury College.
The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors college and high school teams that displayed excellence in the classroom by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale and a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale during the school year.
The college ranks produced 155 programs that met the requirements for the award in 2005-2006. To go along with the record number of NCAA Division I recipients, NCAA Division II (31) tied its highest division mark set in 2003-2004 and NCAA Division III (44) set its second highest division total (48 in 2003-2004).
