Titans are back-to-back PAC volleyball champs

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Westminster College volleyball team earned the United States Marine Corps/American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award for the 2020-21 academic year, the Titans' eighth-straight year (ninth overall) of earning this distinguished honor. 

"Even though teams might not have played during their usual season or may not have competed at all during the past year, coaches still found ways to lead their players to academic excellence," said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer. "This is a testament to the important role volleyball coaches play in their players success both on and off the court." 

The award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors volleyball teams that maintain a year-long grade-point average of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale or 4.10 on a 5.0 scale. 

The Titans, led by 28th-year Head Coach and Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Coach of the Year Tammy Swearingen, won their fifth PAC Championship – including their second-straight.
