Academic All-District news release


MIAC champion St. Thomas Volleyball had one of seven players voted onto the Academic All-District VI team announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

UST sophomore libero Ellie Meyer was honored. Meyer has a 3.98 grade-point average while majoring in Biochemistry. She goes onto the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

An All-MIAC player as a freshman in 2016, Meyer suffered a season-ending arm injury late in 2017, and was sidelined as the Toms lost their last two games of the postseason, both in five sets.

In 56 career matches (152 sets), Meyer has 928 digs and 22 service aces.
