In late July, the Gators have been named as an Academic All-American team by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
To be considered for this honor, teams must have at least a 3.30 grade-point average (on a scale of 4.0) or a 4.10 GPA (on a scale of 5.0). Xavier was on a 4.0 scale.
Xavier was one of nine schools from Arizona to be recognized. There were 975 schools nationwide (girls and boys combined) that were chosen.
“We are honored to be represented as outstanding athletes, but equally proud of the team’s academic success,’’ said XCP coach Lamar-Renee Bryant.
