The streak continues! Every year that Rudder has had a graduating class, we have earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award!
Rudder High Volleyball has been recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) for the 11th consecutive year for Academic Excellence. The award requires the Varsity team to have a minimum of a 3.3 overall average and proof of the program's commitment to academic excellence. Rudder Volleyball had a 3.612 team grade point average for the 2018-2019 school year.
There were only 37 High School teams recognized in Texas for this prestigious award and all high schools, 1A-6A, both public and private, were eligible for nomination.
In addition, Rudder High Volleyball was one of only 6 teams in Texas be named as an AVCA Team Academic Award winner and to also raise a minimum of $1500 to help in Stage 4 Breast Cancer research, in partnership with the Side Out Foundation.
The Rudder Volleyball program works hard to promote excellence in the classroom and on the court with tremendous support from the Rudder staff and administration.
