Georgia Tech’s volleyball standout Kyleen Bell has been named to the 2001 Verizon Academic all-American Volleyball First Team, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Bell garners the award for the second straight year, after being named a first team selection in 2000.
Bell, a second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection from Rocklin, Calif., maintains a 3.96 grade point average with a major in Management. She was the starting middle blocker for the Georgia Tech volleyball team, averaging 3.13 kills per game and .88 blocks per game while helping the Jackets to a 19-8 record and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament this season. This marks the third time Bell has earned academic reputation as she was named to the all-District team in 1999.
To be eligible for Verizon Academic all-America honors, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve and carry at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average.
