Junior Stephanie Nwachukwu

Nov. 22, 2011

HOUSTON - University of Houston junior middle blocker Stephanie Nwachukwu was named to the Conference USA All-Academic Volleyball Team the league office announced Tuesday. The team consists of 11 student-athletes and is selected by the league's Sports Information Directors.

The All-Academic Team includes members that have earned a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or better and are a starter or key reserve on their team.

Nwachukwu was named to the team for the first time in her career after maintaining a 3.89 GPA in chemistry. She is a two-time C-USA Academic Medal winner and a two-time selection to the Commissioner's Honor Roll. The Houston native has also been named to the Dean's List and helped the Cougars win the program's first AVCA All-Academic Team award at the conclusion of the 2010-11 school year.

"Stephanie is an incredibly talented student," head coach Molly Alvey said. "She is super sharp, super focused and just a really smart person. For her, it is great to be recognized when you work so hard at something. There is one thing that never wavers with her and that is her diligence in the classroom.

"She has a couple of academic opportunities ahead of her that will be great for her and the athletic department. This recognition is really nice and congratulations to her for the amount of time and effort she has put in the classroom."

Nwachukwu is third on the team with 256 kills and is hitting .208. She also has 64 blocks and 38 digs. During the opening weekend of the season, she was named the Flo Hyman Collegiate Cup MVP.

Houston closes out the regular season at 7 p.m., Friday at the Athletics/Alumni Center against cross-town rival Rice. The Cougars defeated the Owls 3-0 earlier this season at Tudor Fieldhouse.
