Ostmeyer Named Academic All-District|
Nov. 8, 2007
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech senior volleyball player Alicia Ostmeyer was named to the 2007 CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VI Volleyball First Team in release by the College Sports Information Directors of America Thursday.
Ostmeyer is one of just six players from universities in the district honored with first team recognition. States inside the district include Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. To be eligible, athletes must carry at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average, be at least a sophomore in standing both athletically and academically and have completed at least one full year at their member institution.
A native of Grinnell, Kan. and a Colby Community College transfer, Ostmeyer is second on the Red Raiders in hitting at .306, third in kills at 2.48 kills per game and has recorded 12 double-digit kill matches on the season. She is also tied for the Big 12's fourth-highest attack percentage in a match with her .722 outing against Princeton earlier in the season. She carries a perfect 4.0 GPA and is majoring in speech language hearing.
This selection marks the second-straight year a Tech volleyball player has received such an honor. Setter Emily Ziegler was named to the third team last season. Ostmeyer will now be on the ballot for CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors.
