It was announced last week that the Washington County Commanderettes were among 676 teams that earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) team academic award for the 2013-2014 season.

The award, which was first given 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, according to a press release from the AVCA.

Last year’s Commanderettes put together a 3.6 cumulative team GPA.

This is the second time (the first being in the 2011-2012 season) head coach Anne Mudd’s team has been honored with this distinction.

“We are just so proud of these girls,” Mudd said. “It’s just a huge accomplishment. Our girls know our No. 1 priority is academics, so we’re just thrilled for the players to receive that kind of recognition.”
