The Michigan Tech volleyball team received the Team Academic Award from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) for the 2016-17 season. Tech was among the 118 academically top performing NCAA D-II schools in the country and received the award for the fifth straight season.
"I'm very proud of the work the team did in the classroom last year," said head coach Matt Jennings. "They have proven once again their commitment to excellence in the classroom in addition to what they're doing on the court. The 2016-17 school year saw many individual academic successes and so to top it off with a team award like this is fitting and rewarding."
The Huskies held a 3.4 team cumulative grade-point average for the entire 2016-17 school year. There were seven named to the GLIAC All-Academic Excellence Team and two on the GLIAC All-Academic Award Team. Senior setter Rachel Pohlod was also named CoSIDA Academic All-American and received the GLIAC Commissioner's Award.
