Rebel Duo Earns MW Scholar-Athlete Award

June 20, 2012

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV volleyball program had two student-athletes earn the 2011-12 Mountain West Scholar-Athlete Award, announced by the league office today. Madeline Westman and Allison Davies were recognized for their achievements not only on the court, but also in the classroom. Both student-athletes were tabbed to the 2011 academic all-conference team earlier in the year.

Westman (3.87, communication studies) is no stranger to academic recognition, as she has been selected twice for both conference honors.

Davies (3.96, undeclared) is a first-time honoree for the scholar-athlete award.

The MW Scholar-Athlete Award is one of the highest academic honors bestowed by the Conference. To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least two academic terms at the member institution, while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better, and have participated in varsity competition in an NCAA-sponsored sport.
