Leah Meyer Named to CoSIDA Academic All-America First Team

Kentucky Volleyball middle blocker Leah Meyer was named a 2019 First Team College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-American, becoming the second UK volleyball player ever to be named a first teamer, joining Morgan Bergren in 2015.

A graduate transfer from Duke University, Meyer has a 4.0 grade-point average and is pursuing her Master in Business Administration from the University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics.

The Buffalo, New York, native had one of her most impactful matches for the Wildcats this weekend, as she recorded seven blocks and had six kills on nine swings as Kentucky booked its spot in the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16 with a win over University of Michigan.

On the season, Meyer is averaging 2.03 kills per set, and 1.22 blocks per set, which leads the team. She has scored 301 offensive points this season for the Wildcats and has registered over 400 total attacks.

Kentucky faces off against University of Washington in the Sweet 16 on Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET. The match, from Waco, Texas, can be seen live on ESPN3 and the ESPN app.
