The IUP volleyball team has been honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association for its work in the classroom during the 2008–2009 academic year.
The team posted a cumulative grade-point average of 3.73 last school year, including perfect 4.0 marks for Stacey Root and Danielle Ostenforf. Every member of the team on the roster during the Spring semester earned a spot on the Dean’s List.
IUP was one of only forty-six schools out of more than three hundred that play Division II women’s volleyball to earn the AVCA Team Academic Award. To qualify, a team must maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative GPA for the entire academic year.
