ATLANTA- Morgan Hash has been selected to the 2018 CoSIDA Google Cloud Academic All-American Second Team, the organization announced on Monday afternoon. The Google Cloud Academic All-American Volleyball Team recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the court and in the classroom.
Hash has been an extraordinary student, holding a 4.15 GPA in Public Health. Hash has spent three straight semesters on the President’s List, reserved for students with at least a 4.00 GPA.
On the court, Hash ranked third among all Panthers in kills with 136 in 69 sets played. The junior reached the double-digit kill mark six times on the year, and had at least ten kills while hitting over .290 on three separate occasions.
The Franklin, Indiana native would add 50 digs and 26 total blocks on the season. Hash reached a season high three blocks in three separate matches, including the final two matches of the season against Georgia Southern. The junior recorded 10 service aces on the season, two of which came in a four-set win at Mississippi State.
“Morgan is an excellent example of a Student-Athlete”, said GSU head coach Sally Polhamus. “She has worked tirelessly both in the classroom and on the volleyball court to be the best that she can be.”
Hash is the 27 Panther in Georgia State athletic history to earn a spot on the Academic All-American team. She is third Panther volleyball player to receive Academic All-American honors, and the first since 2011. Overall, GSU has had 14 players recognized by CoSIDA as Academic All-Americans in the past five years.
