Women’s Volleyball Receives 2021-22 USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award

LEXINGTON, Ky. | The United States Marine Corps and the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced recently that more than 1,200 collegiate and high school volleyball teams have earned the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award for their successes in the classroom during the 2021-22 academic year. Head coach Kellie Block’s Farmingdale State College women’s volleyball squad took home accolades, as Rams’ student-athletes combined to a 3.46 grade-point average (4.0 scale) across the two semesters.

The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale, or 4.1 on a 5.0 scale.

“Academic achievement does not happen by accident,” said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer. “I’m so proud of the hundreds of coaching staff that make excellence in the classroom a priority.”

Block’s FSC side is coming off a 2021 campaign in which it posted a 16-10 record, as well as a 10-1 mark in regular-season Skyline Conference competition, which tied for the top mark in the standings. The 2022 Rams outfit will begin competition on Tuesday, Sept. 6, when it plays host to Hunter College in a 7 pm first serve.
