Golden Eagles Earn AVCA Team Academic Award
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 or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.
The Golden Eagle volleyball team lived up to the ORU athletic mantra of “Building Whole Person Champions” by posting a cumulative GPA of 3.42 for the 2013-14 academic year. Then-freshmen Sofia Redden and McKenna Qualls finished with perfect 4.0 GPAs, while departed seniors Jessica Pancratz, Laura Taylor and Bruna Silva were named to the Southland Conference All-Academic Team.
ORU opens their 2014 season on Aug. 29, when they travel to Malibu, Calf., for the Pepperdine Asics Classic.
