For the second year in a row, the Penn Manor girls’ volleyball team has been named to the Academic All-American Honor Roll by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
The 2017 team qualified by earning a cumulative grade-point average of 4.11, which ranks among the top 25 of girls’ high school teams in the United States.
“I’m really proud of our girls for winning this recognition two years in a row,” said head coach Tim Joyce. “This accolade is a great testament to their attitude, character and efforts.”
Eight of 13 Penn Manor varsity players earned a GPA of 4.0 or higher – seniors Emily Cummings, Ava Dunford-Groves, Tiana Ferko, Sydney Leichliter and Mikiah Sangrey, juniors Nicole Krahulik and Erica Shaub and freshman Jordan Schucker.
“Led by a strong group of seniors, the team members always put their studies first,” Joyce said. “Our athletes often were seen before matches or in between games at tournaments with textbooks out, working diligently on course work.”
Congratulations, ladies, on this terrific accomplishment!
