AUSTIN, Texas – The postseason awards continue to roll in for Salisbury University volleyball junior Katie Stouffer. After being named a College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District athlete, Stouffer earned her first selection on the CoSIDA Academic All-America team, being named to the third team, the organization announced on Tuesday.
Stouffer carries a 3.96 grade-point average as an Early Childhood/Elementary Education major, while being the Sea Gulls' offensive leader on the court in 2015. She finished the season sixth in the country, second in the Capital Athletic Conference, and first on the team with 538 kills. Stouffer also ranked third in the nation with 4.98 kills per set and 5.57 points per set, as both led the team and the CAC.
In her first three seasons with the Sea Gulls, Stouffer had already taken over sole possession of No. 5 all-time in kills in program history with 1,303. On three different dates this season, she has set top-10 performances for kills in a single match, including 29 against Frostburg State University on October 24 that marks the most for a Sea Gull in a four-set match.
The Academic All-American is Stouffer's fourth postseason award for 2015, as she was also named an All-CAC first-team member and American Volleyball Coaches Association All-North Regoin member to go with the Academic All-District selection.
