Complete C-USA All-Academic Team

IRVING, Texas – Rice senior outside hitter Leah Mikesky earned her third consecutive Conference USA All-Academic Volleyball Team selection, the league office announced on Friday.

A Kinesiology major with a 4.01 GPA, Mikesky was named Second Team All-CUSA earlier this week. The Schulenburg, Texas native ranks third in the league in double-doubles (13) and is second on the Owls in total kills (343), kills per set (3.27) and total points (370.5). She also ranks third on the team in total digs (280) and digs per set (2.67).

Mikesky earned District 7 CoSIDA Academic All-District honors earlier this month and is eligible to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team for a second straight year.

The Owls have now had at least one student-athlete named to the C-USA All-Academic Team in 11 consecutive seasons.

Rice opens up the C-USA Championship later today at 5 p.m. against Marshall at Tudor Fieldhouse.
