Paulus garners academic honor
Athletics - posted on 11/5/2009
Lakeland senior Brittanie Paulus was named to the 2009 CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine
All-District 5 women's volleyball third team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Thursday.
Paulus, an outside hitter, is majoring in sociology with
minors in criminal justice and ethnic & gender studies. She carries a 3.52 cumulative grade point average.
A Belgium, Wis., native, Paulus will go down as one of the most decorated players in Lakeland program history. Last season, she was named to the Division III All-Midwest Region team by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), and received her second straight first-team All-Northern Athletics Conference recognition.
Paulus, a former NAC Player of the Year, leads the team with 386 kills and 505 digs. Earlier this season, Paulus passed Amy Lieske '04 for most career digs in school history.
"It's clear that Brittanie's competitive drive on the court carries over into the classroom," Lakeland coach Chad Schreiber said. "We take pride in our academic success and push our girls to motivate each other through positive peer pressure. This is a very deserving honor which only adds to Brittanie's already stellar resume."
In addition to her strong scholastic performance, Paulus is also president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and a member of the Criminal Justice Club.
To be eligible for the honor, student-athletes must maintain a minimum 3.30 GPA and appear in at least 50 percent of their team's contests.
