Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College volleyball squad, led by Head Coach Jen Bowman (14th season), has been named as an American Volleyball Coaches of America (AVCA) Team Academic Award recipient thanks to its hard work in the classroom during the 2016-17 school year. A total of 822 teams across the country earned the honors which breaks the previous year's total of 764 to set an all-time high. 

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. NCAA Division III had the second-most honorees this year with a total of 150 schools, a 10-school increase over last year's record number.
