Before playing York College, the Gallaudet women's volleyball team was awarded the American Volleyball Coaches Association Award for maintaining a grade point average above 3.3.
The team was presented their award by Provost Steve Weiner, who told the women he was proud of them for working hard in the classroom and being great ambassadors for the University. "You are what Gallaudet is about and it is an honor to have you respresent Gallaudet. I am especially pleased that this is the second year in a row you've received this award."
Athletic Director Michael Weinstock also congratulated the team. "This is a wonderful award that brings positive recognition to Gallaudet. I am pleased with how hard our volleyball players work and excel in the classroom."
