GLVC honors two UIS teams

The University of Illinois Springfield volleyball and women’s tennis teams earned Great Lakes Valley Conference team academic awards. The GLVC recognizes each team from a member institution that maintains a 3.30 grade-point average for the academic year.

The Prairie Stars’ volleyball team squad posted a 3.44 GPA while the women’s tennis team had a 3.42.

Sixty-six GLVC teams — 51 women’s and 15 men’s — earned the honor in the inaugural year of the award. Ten volleyball teams posted a GPA of 3.30 or better to lead all GLVC sports for the most teams represented. Women’s soccer followed with nine teams and women’s cross country had eight teams.

The awards were featured in a June 23, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
