Lady Bobcat Volleyball continues to collect accolades for a job well done!  Most recently, Kaylee Larimer, Maggie Plake, Alex Spears and Haley Stallings were named as 2018 NAIA-Daktronics Scholar Athletes by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics .   

In order to be named as a Scholar Athlete, competing student-athletes must be a junior or senior and hold a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.4 (NCCAA) or 3.5 (NAIA) on a 4.0 scale. Achieving scholar athlete status at College of the Ozarks is especially difficult because all students are required to work 15 hours per week at their on-campus work station. Maintaining a high GPA while juggling classroom participation, homework, competitions, travel, and practices is quite a feat.

Congratulations to these four awardees on an excellent season both in the classroom and on the court!
