Nov. 21, 2005
BERKELEY, Calif. - Five California volleyball players earned honorable mention Pac-10 All-Academic Team honors for the 2005 season, as announced today by the conference office. The Golden Bears who received recognition are seniors Alexis Kollias and Alicia Powers, juniors Samantha Carter and Jillian Davis and sophomore Angie Pressey.
To be eligible, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or a significant contributor.
The 12th-ranked Golden Bears wind up the regular season when they travel to Los Angeles this week to play 13th-ranked USC at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Lyon Center and 16th-ranked UCLA at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Pauley Pavilion. Earlier this season, Cal snapped its 0-47 winless streak against the Bruins in a 3-0 victory and then upset USC, 3-2, a day later in Berkeley. That weekend also marked the first time Cal swept the Los Angeles schools.
