The Pepperdine beach volleyball team had a program-best 10 players earn West Coast Conference All-Academic honors, with Hannah Frohling, Peyton Lewis and Simone Priebe all earning spots on the WCC All-Academic Team.

Brook Bauer, Jordan Ferrari, Alexis Filippone, Katie Gavin, Savana Greene, Michaela Kasper and Melanie Paul earned honorable mentions.

Senior Frohling has amassed an impressive 3.95 grade point average while earning her degree in sports medicine. She spent her first, albeit shortened, season on the beach in 2020, but spent four years also competing for the Pepperdine women’s indoor volleyball team. Throughout her four years as a Wave, she has excelled in the classroom, earning CoSIDA Academic All-District first team honors in 2017 and second team accolades in 2018 and 2019.

She was an WCC All-Academic first teamer in three seasons indoor, earned a spot on the Pepperdine’s Dean’s List in 2018 and is a four-time Pepperdine Scholar-Athlete and WCC Commissioner’s Honor Roll gold honoree.

Sophomore Lewis has garnered a perfect 4.00 grade point average while studying economics. In her freshman campaign last season, she also picked up WCC Commissioner’s Honor Roll gold honors and was a Pepperdine Scholar-Athlete.

Priebe, a sophomore, has accumulated a 3.94 GPA in Hispanic studies at Pepperdine. Last season, she also made the WCC Commissioner’s Honor Roll gold list and was a Pepperdine Scholar-Athlete.

On the honorable mention squads:

Ferrari, a senior, totaled a 3.311 GPA while studying psychology.

Stats for the juniors: Bauer amassed a 3.335 GPA while studying business administration; Filippone picked up a 3.257 GPA studying integrated marketing communications; Katie Gavin worked for a 3.335 GPA while studying sports administration.

Sophomores Savana Greene garnered a 3.404 GPA while learning about sports medicine; Michaela Kasper amassed a 3.248 GPA while studying advertising; Melanie Paul finished her second year with a 3.622 GPA studying sports medicine.

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA while also being a significant contributor to her team.
