According to the press release, the Scholastic Awards Program honors teams in all classifications and sports for each season. This means that for 2B volleyball, the Lady Mules had the highest grades in the whole state this year.

The average GPA for the 13 players on the 2016 Lady Mules volleyball team is 3.863.

"I'm so proud of my girls," Coach Kayli Hurley said, "not just as athletes, but for being exceptional students. The honor of Academic State Champions exemplifies who these girls are: well rounded, hard working individuals."

The Lady Mules will receive a plaque acknowledging their honor at the 2B volleyball state tournament.
