Three Ohio volleyball players earned recognition for their efforts both on and off the court. Sophomores Chelsea Bilger and Kelly Lamberti and senior Faith Robins were named to the Academic All-MAC team for this season.
The honor is the second academic honor for the senior as Robins was named to the honorable mention list last season.
Bilger has a 3.249 GPA and is studying anthropology. Lamberti has a 3.747 GPA in Integrated Mathematics and Robins has a 3.632 GPA in Psychology.
Five other Bobcats received academic honors for the year as well. Defensive specialist Mollie Geske, middle blockers Lexie Hartnett, Serena Warner, and Liis Kullerkann and senior setter Leah Petrovich all received Academic All-MAC Honorable Mention accolades.
Ohio has had at least three players on the Academic All-MAC team for the last six seasons.
The Bobcats finished 2012 at 21-10 after falling in the second round of the MAC tournament to Northern Illinois, but earning a late season victory over Notre Dame at the Convo.
