    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Southern Illinois volleyball team was awarded the American Volleyball Coaches Association GamePlan/Team Academic Award for the 2005-06 school year.

    The 13-member SIU team carried a 3.34 team GPA.

    The Salukis were one of eight Missouri Valley Conference schools and one of 54 Division I women's programs to receive the honor.

    According to the AVCA website, the award, initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors college and high school teams that displayed excellence in the classroom by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale and a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale during the school year. Nominating head coaches must be AVCA members. Each school will receive a plaque, and each player a certificate commemorating the designation.

    Recipients of the award range from NCAA Division I institutions to high school girls' and boys' teams. The college ranks produced 155 programs that met the requirements for the award in 2005-2006.
