The Harborfields High School girls volleyball team recently earned the 2022 United States Marine Corps/American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award. For the past 30 years, the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award has honored volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale or 4.1 on a 5.0 scale.
“This national recognition is truly an incredible honor,” Athletic Director Rob Franco said. “Knowing the hard work it takes to participate in interscholastic athletics makes this accomplishment all the more impressive, and we are so proud of our team and coaches.”
“To be nationally honored over the course of the entire year is beyond our expectations,” coach Suzanne Legge said. “To have a 3.3 team average for one quarter is fantastic, but to maintain a 3.3 or higher team average for the entire year is something to really celebrate. We couldn’t be prouder of this team and everyone behind them that led the way, including all of their teachers, the entire staff, the administration and the board of education. We thank the athletes in the program and their parents so much for all of their support. This doesn’t happen without the collective efforts of everyone.”
