The Ellsworth Community College 2013 volleyball team was awarded The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2013-2014 season.
The award is given to those that maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade point average during the school year.
"It's just a testament to the high quality character of young athletes we bring in at ECC," commented Head Volleyball Coach Melanie Suljic. "We hope to continue this success in the classroom in the future."
ECC is one of just 23 junior colleges in the nation to receive this award. There were 13 girls on the roster last year who helped accumulate the high GPA for the Panthers. This is the second consecutive year that the Panthers have received this award.
