Tuesday, July 13, 2021

The UNCW volleyball and women's cross country teams have been named recipients of the Colonial Athletic Association's Team Academic Excellence Award for 2020-21.
The league began honoring collective performances in the classroom five years ago. The award recognizes the institution with the highest collective grade point average in the 22 sports sponsored by the CAA.
The team GPA is a calculation of the grade point average of each student-athlete who appeared on an institution's roster throughout the final day of their respective championship seasons during this past academic year.
The 22 awards were spread out over eight different institutions. Drexel led the way with 11 teams recognized. In 21 of the 22 sports, the winning team featured a cumulative grade point average over 3.5.
