PITTSBURGH -- The Point Park University volleyball team is once again among the NAIA leaders with five Daktronics-NAIA Volleyball Scholar-Athletes in 2012. The Pioneers have had five awardees get the honor each of the last three years and once again rank in the Top 10 in the NAIA in that category this season.

There were a total of 408 volleyball players nationwide who were named NAIA Scholar-Athletes this year. Indiana Tech and Hastings (Neb.) led the NAIA with eight scholar-athletes each. NAIA Scholar-Athletes are juniors and seniors with a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher.

Point Park's NAIA Scholar-Athletes this year are seniors Lindsey Oberacker (3.9, Biology & Pre-Med), Margaret Gillooly (3.7, Advertising & PR), Amanda Wenger (3.7, Business Mgmt) and Amanda Ardinger (3.6, Education) and junior Nicole Wurstle (3.8, Biology). The four seniors got the award for the second year in a row, and Wurstle got the honor in the first year she was eligible.
