Date Released: 7/2/2009

The Purchase College men's volleyball team has been named as the 2009 NCAA Division III statistical champion for ACES Per Game.  "We are thrilled to have this honor," said Ernie Palmieri the Director of Athletics at Purchase.  "We have been selected from among 50 men's volleyball programs in the NCAA Division III for this award. Our men’s team is one of our emerging sports teams at Purchase that has been growing successfully under Coach Nelson Kwok, who is new to the program this past year.  He has turned the team around in a very short amount of time and brought his team to the semifinals of the Skyline Conference Championship this past spring.  With the continued recruiting efforts of coach Kwok we will continue to build the strength of the team and to be even more competitive in the years to come," said Palmieri.
