Ole Miss volleyball junior Aubrey Edie has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Third Team as announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Edie is one of three players from the SEC to be named to one of the three CoSIDA Academic All-America Teams.

“We are very proud of Aubrey,” head coach Steven McRoberts said. “I’m thankful that she is getting recognized for what she has accomplished off the court academically. She is a great example of what we want an Ole Miss volleyball player to be: a hard worker, a great teammate, involved with community service and she makes academics a priority.”

To be eligible for Academic All-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00 and have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at her current institution.

Edie boasts a 3.96 GPA in elementary education.

Directing the offensive attack, Edie helped lead the Rebels to a 22-11 overall record and paved the way for the Rebels to have two players in the top 10 in the SEC in hitting percentage and break several records. She ranked among the top 10 in the SEC in assists per set and became the second player in program history to record 3,000 assists.

Edie, who earned CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honors for the second year in a row earlier this season, has made the Chancellor’s Honor Roll every semester of her career and is a two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. In addition, she was named to the SEC Community Service Team.

Edie became the second CoSIDA Academic All-America selection in Ole Miss volleyball history, joining Rebel alum Leslie Schutz, who earned second team honors in 1983.
