Jan. 5, 2010

Corvallis, Ore. – The Oregon State volleyball team started the 2009-10 academic year off solidly, leading all 16 sports teams during the fall term, posting a cumulative 3.38 GPA.


Twelve of the 15 team members posted grade point averages of 3.00 or higher with one of those being a perfect 4.00.


“I am very proud of our young ladies as they continue to remain diligent in the classroom,” head coach Taras Liskevych said. “We set an academic goal of a 3.0 or for our entire team, as well as, for each individual.  We have been above 3.0 every quarter.”


The 2009 squad earned the second most Pac-10 All-Academic nods in the conference with six with senior Bree Knitter (Fallbrook, Calif.) and junior Jill Sawatzky (St. Andrews, Manitoba) leading the way with first team honors. Seniors Camilla Ah-Hoy (Laie, Hawai’i) and Lexie Rathgeber (White Rock, British Columbia), junior Kiersten Sambrailo (Watsonville, Calif.) and sophomore Betsy Devich (Kirkland, Wash.) all were named honorable mention.


Five other teams earned above a 3.00 fall term GPA, and all of the women’s sports had a combined 3.10 GPA.
