“We are proud of our team this past year, overall they did very well in the classroom,” VU Volleyball Coach Gary Sien said. “In particular, we are very proud of Brantli and Rachel as they both received Academic All-American honors. They are in very challenging majors as Brantli is in nursing and Rachel is in engineering. It says a lot about their drive to excel in both the classroom and on the court.”

Students with a grade point average between 3.80 and 3.99 are eligible for second team honors. A GPA between 3.60 and 3.79 earns a student a spot on the third team. To make the first team, a student needs a 4.00 GPA.

Transfer Jaddy Duarte, who played last season at Monroe College, earned third team honors.

A new NJCAA record was set with 6,656 participants across the nation receiving all-academic honors.
