SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference is pleased to announce the 2016 West Coast Conference Volleyball All-Academic Team. The group is headlined by a pair of student-athletes earning all-academic honors for the third straight year. 

BYU senior Amy Boswell (3.90 GPA, Nursing) and Pepperdine senior Gaby Palmeri (3.70, Biology) appear on the WCC All-Academic Team for the third time. Five student-athletes make their second consecutive appearance on the squad: Gonzaga’s McKayla Ferris, San Diego’s Kristen Gegenbacher, Santa Clara’s Kirsten Mead, Pepperdine’s Ashley Morgan and BYU’s Whitney Young Howard. 

This season, 13 nominated volleyball student-athletes posted a GPA of 3.50 or better while six recorded a mark of 3.75 or higher. 

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to her team.
