For the second year in a row, the Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Girls Volleyball team was recognized for their academic achievement. The American Volleyball Coaches Association publishes a list every year of volleyball programs whose total team grade point averages are 3.30 or above, and the ladies at Montgomery Catholic made the cut. Each team must maintain this high GPA throughout the entire academic year, not just during the volleyball season.
“I am so proud of all the hard work my players put in not only on the court, but in the classroom as well,” said Amy Patterson, head coach of the girls volleyball program. “When they leave Montgomery Catholic, I want all of them to be prepared for what the future holds for them and to be well-rounded young ladies. By being both scholars and athletes, I believe they will be successful in everything they do.”
Montgomery Catholic is one of only fifteen high school girls volleyball programs to receive this honor in the state of Alabama and one of 358 nationwide. The ACVA had a record-breaking 977 male and female teams in both high school and college qualify for this award in the 2017-2018 academic year.
