After spending time in three cities in as many weeks and taking two flights halfway across the globe, the Lehigh volleyball team completed its cultural and educational experience in China. The Mountain Hawks went up against some of the toughest competition in the nation and toured historical sites in Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai from May 9-30.
Just one day after final exams concluded, the Lehigh volleyball team departed for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to tour historic sites and play tough opponents in China. The Mountain Hawks are 3-3 in match play halfway through their trip abroad.
The Lehigh volleyball team will gain an once-in-a-lifetime experience when it travels to Beijing and Shanghai, China to not only tour the historic and magnificent cities, but also play tough opponents in Beihang University (BUAA) and East China University of Science and Technology, among others. Lehigh will then return the favor to host BUAA when Beihang visits the United States.
The Lehigh volleyball team placed 13 student-athletes on the Patriot League’s Academic Honor Roll for the fall semester. The 13 Mountain Hawks were tops in the league, headed by sophomore Jade Van Streepan who posted a 3.82 grade-point average as an Environmental Engineering major.
After making its 17th trip to the Patriot League Tournament in program history, the Lehigh volleyball team reflected on an impressive season on the court at its annual awards banquet held on Sunday, January 13. The banquet featured a luncheon, awards ceremony and a season reflection by head coach Bob Bertucci.
