Bison Volleyball represents CAC in AVCA postseason academic award
WASHINGTON, D.C.- The Bison volleyball team earned recognition for maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average for the second year in a row. The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced that a record 353 teams earned the AVCA Team Academic Award for the 2007-2008 season. This number outshines the previous high mark of 308 teams set a year ago.
Head coach Lynn Ray Boren took time out of his busy summer schedule with the United States Deaf Women's Volleyball National Team to reflect on his Bison squad's performance. "It's great to see the players do well away from the court--it makes a coach's job easier!"
Athletic Director Mike Weinstock added that he was "pleased with the continued success of the volleyball program, and looking forward to an exciting 2008 slate."

Gallaudet was the only school within the Capital Athletic Conference to receive this award, along with an additional 61 NCAA Division III institutions.
The Bison posted a 24-12 overall record in 2007, including a 7-1 conference mark to tie Salisbury University for first place in the regular-season standings.
