CORTLAND — The SUNY Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) has recognized two Oswego State volleyball athletes for their accomplishments during the 2018 season.
Senior Alison Sullivan was selected to the 2018 SUNYAC Championship All-Tournament Team as well as being named second-team all-conference.
Sophomore Lauren Fie was honored with the Elite20 Award that goes to the student-athlete with the highest grade-point average at the championship site.
In the two postseason matches the Lakers played, Sullivan had 21 kills and eight blocks while hitting .286 to earn a spot on the all-tournament team. During the regular season, Sullivan led the SUNYAC in total blocks (120) and blocks per game (1.09) to anchor an Oswego State defense that led the conference in blocking (216 blocks, 1.93 blocks per game) and digs (17.65 digs per game). She also led the Lakers with 245 kills and was the most efficient attacker with a .300 attack percentage. This is the second time Sullivan has earned all-conference honors, garnering a third-team selection in 2016.
Fie receives the Elite20 Award thanks to a stellar 3.95 grade-point average in psychology.
It was the 50th season for Oswego State volleyball on campus and the duo contributed to making it a banner year as the team finished many categories ranked inside the top 10 in program history. The squad was seventh in wins (19), 10th in winning percentage (.576), fourth in digs (2,081), sixth in blocks (224), 10th in aces (243), seventh in assists (1,197), ninth in attack percentage (.153) and eighth in kills (1,271).
