Fourteen Beach Players Selected To CCSA Honor Roll

BATON ROUGE, La. – Fourteen LSU beach volleyball players were selected to the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association Honor Roll, the league office announced Friday afternoon.

To be eligible for the distinction, CCSA Beach Volleyball student-athletes excelled in the classroom during the fall semester of the 2015-16 academic calendar year. 

CCSA Honor Roll Honors will be earned by all student-athletes who earned a minimum of a 3.0 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale at the conclusion of the past fall semester’s grades. If you had student-athletes take ONLY pass/fail during classes the 2015 fall semester, that student’s current semester grades may be used to determine CCSA Honor Roll status by filing an additional form at the conclusion of the current semester. The student-athlete must have passed all classes taken during the fall semester.

The list includes Helen Boyle, Ashley Allmer, Victoria Boraski, Jeni Clark, Megan Davenport, Emma Hiller Lilly Kessler, Cati Leak, Maddie Ligon, Katie Lindelow, Callan Molle, Carly Morris, Taylor Wilson, Cheyenne Wood.

“That’s exciting,” said associate head coach Russell Brock. “(Academics) are something we take really seriously, and we talk about it and focus on that. It’s definitely a priority, and it’s something that we feel represents our program. The classroom stuff is what’s going to carry them over in life. The volleyball stuff is great, but their academics are what really matters in the long run. To get recognized for these accomplishments is great.”

The Tigers are back in action this Saturday against UNO at 10 a.m. at Mango’s Beach Volleyball Club off of Sherwood Forest in Baton Rouge.
