The Stetson University indoor and sand volleyball programs have each been selected as recipients of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for 2013-14, the organization announced on Monday.

The award is presented annually to volleyball programs who maintain at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale.  The indoor program completed the 2013-14 academic year with a 3.44 team GPA, while the sand program compiled a 3.50 team GPA.  It is the third consecutive year the Hatters' sand program earned the AVCA Team Academic Award.

The indoor program was one of 134 recipients on the NCAA Division I level to be honored with the team award, and the sand program was just one of six.  Stetson and Mercer were the only two Division I institutions to have both their indoor and sand programs recognized.  The Hatters also saw a combined 28 student-athletes (indoor and sand) earn Atlantic Sun All-Academic Team honors in 2013-14.

Stetson's indoor team opens the season Aug. 29 at the FAU Invitational in Boca Raton, Fla.
