Wilson nets Academic All-America honors

Stephanie Wilson

EVANSVILLE, Ind.—University of Southern Indiana volleyball senior setter Stephanie Wilson (Terre Haute, Indiana) was named to the ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA Academic All-America second team.

Wilson, who becomes the third student-athlete in the volleyball program's history to earn Academic All-America honors, has maintained a 4.00 grade point average in chemistry during her first three years of college. She is a three-time Academic All-District V performer as well as a three-time Academic All-GLVC honoree.

"This is a great honor for Stephanie as well as the USI volleyball program," Head Coach Leah Mercer said. "Stephanie worked hard in the class room and on the court to become a model for what the phrase ‘student-athlete' stands for."

In 2007, Wilson averaged 10.96 assists per game before an injury ended her final collegiate season prematurely. She finished her career in second-place all-time at USI with 4,602 assists. She also recorded more than 950 career digs, 300 career kills, and 200 career blocks.

Wilson burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2004 when she recorded 1,471 assists en route to earning All-GLVC and All-Region honors. Her performance in 2004 helped lead the Screaming Eagles to the GLVC regular-season and tournament titles as well as their second NCAA II Tournament appearance in three seasons. Wilson is a three-time All-GLVC performer, having earned first-team honors in 2005 and honorable mention honors in 2006.

She joins former USI standouts Kristi Kavanaugh, who earned first-team Academic All-America honors in 2002, and Sheri Kaiser, who earned third-team Academic All-America honors in 1993.

USI has had 10 student-athletes earn a total of 12 CoSIDA Academic All-America awards since 1993.
