YORK, PA – York College junior volleyball standout Eryn Brady has added another postseason accolade as she has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Four honors for the second straight year as announced by the organization on Thursday afternoon.

The Academic All-America program honors student-athletes who are at least a sophomore and owns a cumulative GPA of 3.30 or above while they also must be a significant contributor to their respective teams. The Academic All-America program dates back to 1952 and has honored thousands of deserving student-athletes from numerous sports across all divisions with these Academic All-America scholar-athlete honors.

Brady earned the honor for the second straight year as she boasts a perfect 4.0 GPA in secondary education – social studies at York. She is a four-time member of the York College Dean's List, earning the honor in all of her collegiate semesters. Brady was one of two players on the eight player District Four squad to own a perfect 4.0 GPA. She was one of three juniors on the squad to go along with two sophomores and three seniors. Brady will now be eligible to earn national Academic All-America honors as those squads will be released in December.

Brady was fantastic for the Spartans as she earned second-team All-CAC honors after leading the Spartans to a record of 19-10 overall and 5-4 in the CAC. The junior outside hitter, tallied 232 kills in 106 sets, averaging 2.19 kills per set, good for 16th in the conference. She also recorded 53 total blocks, 27 digs and 263 points.

In 29 matches, Brady had nine with at least 10 kills, including five of the final seven matches of the season. In a 3-2 victory over Salisbury on October 20, she finished with a career-high 18 kills. That came during a seven-game stretch where she notched 81 kills, good for an average of 2.53 kills per set.

Brady compiled an attack percentage of .237, the second-highest on the team, and she produced four games with a rating of .400 or better. Against King's on September 22, she accounted for nine kills in 20 total attacks, and had 10 more in just 19 attacks against Marymount (Va.) in another 3-2 win.

For her career, Brady has played in 320 sets in 90 career matches. She has totaled 679 kills, good for an average of 2.12 kills per set. She has a career attack percentage of .224 while she also has 36 assists, 17 service aces, 144 digs, and 189 blocks (33 solo blocks).
