PROVO -- Seven BYU volleyball players were honored last week for their achievements off the court as the Mountain West Conference announced its 2004 All-Academic Team selections.

The Cougar volleyball honorees were led by All-MWC senior Lindsey Metcalf, who earned a 3.90 GPA in the Early Childhood Education program and was also named to the CoSIDA District VIII All-Academic Team. Junior Lexi Brown earned a 3.74 GPA as a Communications major while Lindsey Evans received accolades for her 3.64 Communications GPA.

All-MWC junior Kim Wilson earned recognition with a 3.19 GPA in the Health Science major. Fellow All-MWC selection and Health Science major Lindsy Hartsock was named to the team with a 3.40 GPA. Sophomore Stacie Powell (3.62, Pre-PE Teaching) and freshman Chelsea Goodman (3.12, Open Major) rounded out the women's volleyball selections.

The seven volleyball aces were part of an MWC-high 71 athletes selected from BYU, 25 more than any other school in the conference. Student-athletes must have completed at least one term while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better in order to qualify for the honor. The student-athletes must also be starters or significant contributors on their athletic team.
