AVCA awards Chapman with second straight academic honor

August 2, 2011

For the third time in the past four years, the Chapman University women’s volleyball team has been honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association for academic excellence. The Panthers earned a team grade point average of 3.38 for the 2010-11 school year, bringing home an AVCA Team Academic Award for the second year in a row.

Chapman was one of 88 schools in NCAA Division III to receive the award. The honor is thanks, in large part, to seven Panthers who had a GPA of 3.5 or higher during the academic year. Chapman was led by freshman OH Lena Buckendorf who posted a 3.87 mark while majoring in biology. Also, freshmen Lauren Schour and Katie Wise earned GPAs of 3.76 last year.
