  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with.

Extending the second-longest streak in NCAA’s Division I, for the 23rd consecutive year and 24th total year, the Bowling Green State University Volleyball program has earned the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award. To qualify for the award sponsored by the United States Marines Corps, teams must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3.

Not only did the Falcons accomplish that, they are only one of 45 teams to earned the Honor Roll distinction as part of the top 20% of team GPAs in Division I. This is the fourth season the Falcons have been named to the AVCA Academic Honor Roll, previously receiving the honor in 2018, 2020 and 2022.

BGSU’s 23-year streak is tied for the second longest in Division I, tied with Toledo, and behind only Indiana State (25 years). Overall, this award marked the 24th in program history for the Falcons, ranking third among NCAA Division I programs.

“We are extremely proud of our team’s commitment and hard work required for achieving academic excellence,” said head coach Danijela Tomic. “Being in the top 20 of the team GPAs in the NCAA Division I and having an impressive 23-win streak while also winning championships speaks volumes about the character of our outstanding student-athletes.”

Earlier this week, the athletic department announced promotions for the upcoming season, including Orange Waves for matches against Michigan (Sept. 6) and Toledo (Oct. 6)  and Senior Night (Nov. 11). Find the full list of promotions on the athletics department website.
