NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. —
Frostburg State sophomore Lauren Petrick (North Caroline/Denton, Md.)
has been named to the 2002 Verizon Academic All-District II College Division Volleyball Team announced today by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Petrick, a 5-9 outside hitter who carries a 3.903 grade point average in business administration and accouting, is one of just two sophomores voted to the third team. A total of 21 players were selected to the first, second and third teams.
Petrick was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Co-Player of the Year after leading the Bobcats to a 25-9 overall record, including a 12-0 mark against league competition.
FSU captured its fifth AMCC Tournament championship in the last six years and earned its third bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament in the last four seasons.
During the regular-season, Petrick led FSU with 409 kills, a .265 hitting percentage and 86 service aces. She also ranked third on the squad with 246 digs.
"This a well-deserved honor for Lauren," said Bobcat second-year head coach Jeff Billington. "She works very hard both on the court and in the classroom, and she represents Frostburg State and the AMCC strongly."
The District II College Division consists of all non-NCAA Division I colleges and universities in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
To be nominated for the Verizon Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore with a 3.2 or higher cumulative grade point average and be a starter or significant reserve.
