PROVO -- Seven BYU volleyball players were honored last week for their achievements off the court as the Mountain West Conference announced its 2005 All-Academic Team selections.

The Cougar volleyball honorees featured AVCA honorable mention All-American Lindsy Hartsock, who was also named to the CoSIDA Academic District VIII Second Team with a 3.54 grade point average. The reigning MWC Player of the Year is double-majoring in Public Health and Home and Family Living. Senior Lexi Brown Patterson led BYU with a 3.74 GPA in Advertising.

All-MWC sophomore Chelsea Goodman earned recognition with a 3.01 GPA in the School Health major. All-Tournament selection and Clothing Design major Rachel Dyer was named to the team with a 3.59 GPA. Janvier Beaumont (3.69, Open), Lindsey Evans (3.61, Marketing Management) and Annie Kemp (3.52, Elementary Education) rounded out the women's volleyball selections.
