LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The 2015-16 Covenant volleyball team picked up one more team honor earlier this week when it was recognized as a Team Academic Award recipient from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). 

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. A record 764 programs earned honors this year, including 140 NCAA Division III members.

Covenant was one of four USA South institutions to earn recognition this year joining Maryville, North Carolina Wesleyan and William Peace. It is the second time in the last three years that Covenant has collected academic honors from the AVCA.

Covenant finished the 2015 season with a 19-13 overall record, a USA South regular season and tournament title and an NCAA Tournament appearance.

The Lady Scots open the 2016 season on Sept. 2 against Millsaps in Rome, Ga.
