Sun Named Academic All-American
Lexi Sun added to the Nebraska volleyball program's impressive academic tradition on Monday, as she was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team.
A two-time academic all-district selection, Sun was named an Academic All-American for the first time in her career. She is the 24th Husker volleyball student-athlete to earn Academic All-America recognition. Her selection increased Nebraska's total to 39 Academic All-America awards, the most of any volleyball program in NCAA history. As an institution, the University of Nebraska has produced an NCAA-record 342 Academic All-Americans across all sports.
A native of Encinitas, California, Sun carries a 3.51 GPA, and she earned a bachelor's degree in communication studies last December. She was an All-American on the court and in the classroom, earning second-team AVCA All-America recognition in addition to her second-team Academic All-America accolade. Sun has announced that she will return to Nebraska for a fifth season this fall.
