Charlotte volleyball was one of 131 Division I women’s programs across the country to receive the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2012-13 season, the organization announced this week.
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.
The AVCA Team Academic Award has become one of the AVCA's fastest growing awards programs, seeing an impressive surge in teams honored over the past several years. Since the 2000-2001 season, the number of recipients has increased every single year but one, while amassing an overall 300% increase over the span of the last decade. Since the award's inception in 1993, the amount of award winners has increased from 62 to its current number of 623.
NCAA Division I recorded their highest-ever total number of recipients, honoring 130 programs, including the 49ers for the second year in a row.
Charlotte just concluded its first full week of fall practice, in advance of the season opener, a pair of matches on Friday, August 30 at Davidson College in the Wildcat Classic. The 49ers will face CSU Bakersfield at noon and face the host Wildcats at 7 p.m. that evening on the opening day of the season.
Charlotte will play its first home match on Friday, September 20 in the 49ers Invitational, with a tilt versus South Carolina State, starting at 7 p.m.
