NORFOLK, Va. - The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announced the 2017 Volleyball All-Academic Selections, honoring 66 student-athletes from the conference’s 13 institutions who achieved academic success during the 2016-17 academic year.

Eighteen (18) Rattlers were cited among the league's top academic achievers, including eight starters, which is a testament to the hard work put in by head coach Alex Wood and his staff, in conjuction with the FAMU Athletic Academic Support Staff, headed by Anthony Williams, to raise the academic success of the Rattler student-athletes.

“I salute our football student-athletes for maintaining a 3.0 or better grade point average,” said MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas. “I would also like to recognize the academic support staff, faculty, parents and coaches who have contributed to the academic and athletic success of these student-athletes.”
