Oredigger spikers earn academic honors

Five members of the Montana Tech volleyball team earned a spot on the Frontier Conference All-Academic Team, which was released this week.

Jesse Bowden of Newbury Park, Calif., Shersteen Cline of Big Sandy, Kirstin King of Anaconda, Korey Krumm of Anaconda and Lacey Phelan of Missoula all earned a spot on the team.

To be eligible, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore in standing, maintain a 3.0 GPA and be enrolled at the school the previous two semesters.

Bowden, Cline, King and Phelan will graduate this year. Krumm just finished her sophomore year of eligibility at Montana Tech.

The Orediggers finished 18-11 overall and 8-8 in conference play under first year head coach Brian Solomon last season.

Carroll College placed 10 players on the team, while eight Montana Western Bulldogs received the honor.
