LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech volleyball team enjoyed one of its more successful semesters in the classroom this past spring as the Red Raiders recorded a 3.45 grade-point average.

Backed by five players with perfect 4.0 GPA over the semester, the Red Raiders easily surpassed the semester goal from head coach Don Flora to total a team GPA of 3.30 or higher.

"This is a sign of these athletes setting goals and attaining them," Flora said. "Not only did they reach the 3.30 goal, but they surpassed it with a 3.45 this spring. The staff is proud to see this level of commitment in the classroom."

Jenna Allen, Emily Ruetter, Ellen Sorrells, Kate Foley and Nicole Hragyil led Tech in the classroom with perfect 4.0 GPAs, while Miara Cave, Breeann David, Sam Podraza and Brianna Grant all recorded a GPA at 3.50 or higher.

The Red Raiders will begin their 2013 season Aug. 30-31 at the Wildcat Invitational hosted by Weber State in Ogden, Utah.
