Eastern Kentucky University senior Chloe Rojas was chosen to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-America® Volleyball Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Rojas was a second team selection. She was the only Division I volleyball player from an institution in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and one of only two from the Ohio Valley Conference, to be chosen to one of the three Academic All-America® Volleyball Teams.
In October, the senior defensive specialist earned the highest Ohio Valley Conference individual academic/athletic honor when she was chosen as one of six individuals to receive the prestigious OVC Scholar-Athlete Award for 2017-18.
The St. Charles, Illinois native has a 4.0 grade-point-average while majoring in journalism and Spanish.
In addition to her perfect grade-point-average, Rojas’ other academic accomplishments include: Dean’s List and President’s Award every semester during the past three years, OVC Medal of Honor (2016, 2017, 2018 – given annually to the student-athletes that achieve the highest GPA in a conference-sponsored sport) and OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll (2016, 2017, 2018).
On the court, Rojas was chosen as the 2017 OVC Defensive Player of the Year and she has been chosen as the conference’s defensive player of the week on three occasions during her career.
This past season, she played in all 104 sets and led the team with 468 digs, an average of 4.50 per set. Rojas ranked fifth in the conference in digs.
