Wando High School’s volleyball program earned the  USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award for the 2021-2022 season. This is the sixth consecutive year the Warriors picked up this honor. The United States Marine Corps (USMC) and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced the honorees last month, which included 425 high school girls’ teams.  

The academic achievement award was created in 1992 to recognize teams that  excel in the classroom. The award 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  Warriors team finished the school year with a team GPA of 3.412 (4.0 scale),  making them eligible for the national honor. 

Wando won the South Carolina High School League’s Region 7-AAAAA title, made  the Lower State championship match in November, and finished the season with a  35-8-1 record. Head coach Alexis Glover, who has been in charge of the program  for three and a half decades and won four state titles, appreciates the balance of  academic and athletic excellence. 

“Our program’s first priority is academics,” said Glover. “School comes before  volleyball. When your priorities are in the right order, you can be successful in the  classroom and on the court.”
