Team finished second among twenty-four teams with a collective GPA of 3.58
Calvary University’s volleyball team made it on the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) list of 2020 scholar teams. To be eligible for this honor, a team must have a collective minimum grade point average of 3.4 on a 4.0 grading scale.
On top of being eligible for this award, these women finished in the top two of twenty-four teams with a collective GPA of 3.58!
“As a first-year coach,” said Head volleyball coach Josh Johnson, “one of my hopes was to prioritize daily encouragement of the team in their pursuit of Jesus, and in their pursuit of academic excellence. There were many times that I came up short in this goal. God is faithful. The Lord was working in and through this team on both levels.”
“I am so thankful,” Johnson continued, “for two assistant coaches, Carolyn Bradley and Esther Hildebrandt, who passionately pursue discipleship opportunities within the team. That fact combined with how my wife sacrificially serves the team has been a recipe for life-on-life discipleship.”
