NEW ALBANY, Ind. - Six Grenadiers were named to the River States Conference Volleyball Scholar-Athlete Team, as announced by the league office.

Seniors Hannah Barker, Mary Dye and Katie Fischer, juniors Caitlynn Pfaadt and Taylor Sutton and sophomore Monica Loftus all earned recognition.

The 2016 River States Conference Volleyball Scholar-Athlete Team recognized 58 individuals who earned the academic honor. This is the second year of the RSC Scholar-Athlete Team program, which recognizes excellence in the classroom while competing as an RSC student-athlete. 

To earn a spot on the team, student-athletes must have a grade-point average of 3.25 or higher, compete in an RSC championship sport and be nominated by their athletic department.

Four out of the six IU Southeast honorees (Hannah Barker, Mary Dye, Katie Fischer, Monica Loftus) were also recognized to the RSC All-Conference teams for their stellar play during the 2016 season.

The NAIA has a similar awards program, the NAIA-Daktronics Scholar-Athlete award, which is for juniors and seniors who have a grade-point average of 3.50 or higher. Those awards will be announced at the conclusion of the NAIA Volleyball Tournament.
