Volleyball Claims CHAMPS Title

May 4, 2011


LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Kansas volleyball team was named the overall winner of the 2010-11 Jayhawk CHAMPS competition, beating out 13 other KU Athletics teams in the annual competition.

CHAMPS, which stands for challenging athletes’ minds for personal success, is a friendly competition between Kansas Athletics’ sports teams. The competition was constructed to appeal to student-athletes’ competitiveness and rewards those teams who encourage and participate in personal development opportunities as well as building camaraderie between all Jayhawk teams.

Teams have an opportunity to earn points throughout the academic year based on five categories: personal development, community outreach, team GPA, Jayhawks supporting Jayhawks, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) participation and Jayrock. The KU volleyball team racked up 4,192 points to edge out runner-up women’s golf, which had 4,010 points.
