See UAB Volleyball in its Green and Gold Scrimmage at 2 p.m. Saturday in Bartow Arena and attend a free youth clinic afterward. Admission is free.

Earlier this month, the team received the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 season, with a 3.432 GPA. UAB also placed 12 players on the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll, which recognizes student-athletes with GPAs of 3.0 or higher.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with the pride that our student-athletes take in their performance in the classroom, especially since most of these young ladies are two-sport athletes,” said Head Coach Kerry Messersmith.

The Blazers will open the 2014 season at home with the UAB/Samford Tournament Aug. 29. UAB will host Southeastern Louisiana at 10 a.m. and Michigan State at7 p.m. in Bartow Arena.
