The Wilmington University women's volleyball team was honored with the AVCA Team Academic Award along with 66 other Division II institutions for its academic excellence during the 2011-12 academic year, announced last week.

The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, had a record-breaking 533 teams from men's and women's Division I, II and III programs, as well as high school girl's and boy's squads earned the award for maintaining 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. 

From the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, Caldwell College and Dominican College both join Wilmington on the prestigious list, as all three institutions helped Division II record its highest-ever total number of award recipients.
