Marguerite Grubb has been named to the 2016 CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team in an announcement by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Thursday.

The senior setter is the program’s first CoSIDA Academic All-American since Alicia Ostmeyer in 2008 and seventh overall.

Grubb is the lone Big 12 representative as only 18 volleyball players from universities across the country are be recognized as Academic All-Americans.

The accounting major is also one of just five selections to post a 4.00 GPA.

A native of Houston, Texas, Grubb recently completed her final campaign for the Red Raiders in which she led the team with 1,041 assists to give her back-to-back 1,000 assist seasons.

Additionally, she was one of six Big 12 student-athletes to average over 10 assists per set this season while climbing into the Texas Tech record books, finishing eighth in career assists with 2,696.

The CoSIDA Academic All-America Teams are selected by vote of the College Sports Information Directors of America’s Board of Directors and the Academic All-America committee following the announcement of the Academic All-District honorees.

In order to be considered for CoSIDA Academic All-District, a student-athlete must be a starter or an important reserve, have at least a 3.30 cumulative GPA, have played in at least half of the team’s games at the position listed for their nomination and have completed one full calendar year at his or her current institution.
