WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Four Arizona volleyball student-athletes earned All-Academic honors from the Pac-10 Conference, announced today by Commissioner Larry Scott.


Paige Weber, Dana Hutchinson, Kaylen Bannister and Elise Hendrickson make up the academic quartet for Arizona.


To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 grade-point average and be either a starter or a significant contributor on the floor.


Weber was named to the first team with a 3.84 grade-point average in pre-business.  The Wildcat setter recently was accepted into UA’s nationally-recognized Eller College.  On the season, Weber has started all 99 sets played and has an assist-to-set ratio of 10.67.


Hutchinson, still undecided in her major, has a 3.79 over general course work.  The Laguna Beach, Calif. native has recorded 135 total kills on the season and has a dig per set ratio of 2.0.


Sophomores Bannister and Hendrickson were lauded as honorable mention selectees.  Bannister has posted 25 total blocks on the season while Hendrickson, a libero, has a 156 total digs.


The Wildcats conclude their regular season schedule this week as they travel to Los Angeles to face UCLA Friday afternoon and USC on Saturday.
