The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed 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 GPA on a 5.0 scale.
NSU is one-of-three Southland Conference members to be honored, and just one-of-two is the state of Louisiana.
“We’re extremely proud of our student-athletes to bring home this award once again,” said Lady Demon co-head coach Hugh Hernesman.
The Lady Demons put up a 3.49 GPA overall along with naming 12 members to the Fall 2012 SLC Commissioner’s honor roll. Jessica Guittierrez and Mackenzie Neely were among those with 4.0 averages.
