The Central College volleyball team has tied a national record through the success of its athletes in the classroom.  For a record tenth straight year, the Dutch received the AVCA Team Academic Award by achieving a team grade point average of 3.30 or better.  Central’s combined GPA was a lofty 3.55 in 2009-2010, up from an already solid 3.47 the season before.  Central shares the all-time record for most consecutive years receiving the award with Wisconsin-La Crosse, and have been honored eleven times overall, which ties the record set by Kalamazoo of Michigan.
