Macey Austin Selected to C-USA All-Academic Team

IRVING, Texas – Junior outside hitter Macey Austin was selected to the 2018 InTouch Credit Union C-USA All-Academic Team, the league announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Austin started in all 26 matches and played in all 99 sets for the Miners this season. She set a season career high in kills with 366 (eighth in C-USA) and kills per set with 3.70 (fifth in C-USA).

The junior registered 22 double-digit kill outings, along with eight double-doubles. Her best performance of the season came against Illinois-Chicago (8/31) when she recorded 23 kills and 14 digs in a five-set victory over the Flames.

The Keller, Texas, native boasts a 3.95 GPA majoring in kinesiology. She is a two-time C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal recipient (2017 & 2018) and C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll honoree (2017 & 2018).

Austin became only the 10th player in program history to reach the 1,000-kill mark, and rates fourth all-time in kills per set (3.25).

She is the first player to lead the Orange and Blue in kills for three-consecutive seasons (2016, 17 and 18) since Amy Sanders (2007, 08 and 09).

UTEP Volleyball Macey Austin Earns C-USA Preseason Team Honors

Irving, Texas – UTEP Junior Macey Austin was named to the Conference USA Women’s Volleyball Preseason Team, the league announced on Thursday.

Austin burst onto the scene her freshman year when she garnered an All-Freshman team selection due to her stellar play as an outside hitter for the Miners.

Austin’s sophomore season showed great improvement in almost every statistical category. She led the team in kills (359) and kills per set (3.45). Her season was highlighted by a career-night 27 kills when UTEP upset Rice (Sept. 22) in a five-set thriller.

As well as being an incredible athlete on the court, Austin is also an exceptional student. She has earned two C-USA Commissioner Academic Medals, and is an honor roll student.
