St. Rita High School Volleyball Team Honored By AVCA for Academic Excellence

St. Rita High School and Head Coach Brian Hagen ‘04 are pleased to announce that St. Rita Volleyball has been honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) for academic excellence with a Team Academic Award.

The award honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams throughout the nation that display 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 grade-point average on a 5.0 scale.

With a 3.9 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale, St. Rita is one of only 29 boys high school volleyball teams in the nation to receive this award.

St. Rita High School Principal Brendan Conroy said, “We are incredibly proud of our volleyball program, led by Coach Brian Hagen, for the excellence they show on the court and equally so in the classroom. These student-athletes represent all that St. Rita stands for: excellence in all things.”
