Blue Knights, Trojans volleyball teams net academic recognition


The Southington and Lyman Hall girls volleyball teams have received a Team Academic Award from the American Volleyball Coaches Association for the 2012-13 school year.

The award, which dates back to the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.

Joining Southington and Lyman Hall as recipients in Connecticut were Bloomfield, state Class LL champion Darien, Nonnewaug and the Taft School.

It was Lyman Hall’s second AVCA Team Academic Award in a row.

“This is an outstanding award that recognizes the hard work and dedication our players have demonstrated over the course of the entire year in the classroom,” remarked LH coach Tim Gaiser.

“There were only five other teams in the state of Connecticut so recognized and this award sets Lyman Hall volleyball apart from our competition in a very important and lasting aspect of their young lives. I am extremely proud of our student-athletes’ achievement knowing that they are accomplishing their goals.”

Lyman Hall went 11-8 last year, falling in the first round of the CIAC Class L tournament. Southington (17-5) lost in the Class LL semifinals to Darien, which went on to sweep Cheshire in the championship match. The local teams open the 2013 season on Tuesday, Sept. 10.
