Volleyball Aces Spring Term
June 24, 2009
The Oregon State University women’s volleyball team once again paced the school’s intercollegiate teams for term grade point average. Head coach Taras Liskevych’s club posted a 3.50 spring term GPA, edging women’s cross country/track at 3.46.
Volleyball, which was honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association last year for academic achievement, had eight student-athletes earn Pac-10 Conference All-Academic recognition from the 2008 season.
“I'm very proud of our student-athletes as they led all programs academically for the second straight spring term,” Liskevych said. “We set a team and individual goal of a 3.0, and I am pleased to say that we have hit our team goal each term.”
Cross country/track remains the cumulative GPA leader for teams at 3:42 with volleyball at 3.36. Nine other teams own 3.00-plus cumulative GPAs, including women’s rowing (3.25), women’s soccer (3.24), men’s soccer (3.23), gymnastics (3.17), men’s golf (3.17), softball (3.11), women’s basketball (3.04), women’s golf (3.01) and swimming (3.00).
Twenty-one student-athletes posted a 4.00 spring term GPA, with five having a 4.00 cumulative honor. Sixty student-athletes made the Honor Roll.
OSU had 96 selections on the Pac-10’s All-Academic teams for the 2008-09 academic year.
