ECC Volleyball receives academic award
IOWA FALLS – The Ellsworth Community College volleyball team has been recognized by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) for its academic accomplishments during the 2012-2013 year, qualifying as an All-Academic Team. Teams selected must have maintained a grade point average of 3.00 for the year.
“I’m extremely proud of these ladies and their accomplishments this year, not only on the court but in the classroom as well,” says Head Volleyball Coach Melanie Lane. “The team included 12 freshmen and one sophomore, so for most of them it was their first year away from home and they excelled. They’re a wonderful group of self-disciplined students who all strive for personal bests. They’ve definitely set the bar high for the rest of the Panther squads to follow.”
