For the third straight year, the Bethel College volleyball team was named a USMC/American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award recipient.

The award is given to teams with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.3 or better on a four-point scale.

Bethel was one of five Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference teams and one of 66 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics teams to earn the award.

Hesston High School also received the award at the high school division and was cited for reaching its “Dig Pink” fundraising goal.
