State Representative Ross McGregor (R-Springfield) today presented a resolution on the floor of the Ohio House of Representatives to the Wittenberg University Women’s Volleyball Team in recognition of its 2011 NCAA Division III national championship.
Coached by Division III Coach of the Year Paco Labrador, the volleyball team had an overall record of 37-3 after winning the championship match against Christopher Newport University. Additionally, the team has a grade point average of 3.5, the highest of any team on Wittenberg University’s campus.
“The members of this team have shown that they are successful both on and off the court,” Representative McGregor said. “I’m very pleased to be honoring the hard work that they have put into their sport and into their academic endeavors.”
The national championship is not only the first in the team’s history, but also the first national championship by a women’s team at Wittenberg and the first women’s collegiate volleyball team to win a national title from the state of Ohio.
