Dighton-Rehoboth High School Receives Volleyball Award
The Dighton-Rehoboth volleyball team received the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award. In a league letter to the team's head coach, Keith Martinous, spokesperson Betsey McCamish writes: "I am pleased to inform you that Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School (BoyHS) Volleyball is a recipient of the 2017-18 AVCA Team Academic Award. Congratulations!
This award honors teams who have matched their dedication to the sport of volleyball with excellence in the classroom. Meeting the award standards is an accomplishment of which you and your team can be proud. It is our hope that your team will consider the AVCA Team Academic Award an annual challenge to achieve," McCamish continued.
The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.
The Dighton-Rehoboth boys volleyball is in its 1st varsity season since about 2003. The program is being built by former East Providence Townie volleyball coach and current East Providence High teacher, Keith Martinous. "We play in the South Alliance conference, which consists of DR, Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical, North Quincy, Quincy, Taunton, and Barnstable. In addition we also play the Big 3 conference (Durfee, New Bedford and Brockton)," said Martinous. "It is getting back to popularity in the Rehoboth area," he added.
