    Capital One All-District Release

    CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Southern Illinois volleyball players Bailey Yeager and Alysia Mayes were named Capital One Academic All-District selections Thursday.

    Yeager was named first-team All-District 5 while Mayes was named to the second team.

    A communications disorders major with a cumulative 3.92 GPA, Yeager has played in all 25 of Southern's matches thus far in 2012. The senior defensive specialist leads SIU and ranks second in the MVC with an average of 5.62 digs per set. She is also tied for second on the team with 23 service aces for the season.

    Yeager's first-team honor advances her to the ballot for Academic All-America honors, which will be decided in late November.

    An exercise science major with a cumulative 3.76 GPA, Mayes has also played in all 25 matches for the Salukis this season. The senior middle blocker ranks second in the MVC with an average of 3.66 kills per set with .380 hitting percentage that ranks third in the Valley. Mayes also leads SIU and ranks second in the MVC in blocking with an average of 1.43 per set in addition to leading the Salukis and ranking fifth in the MVC with 25 service aces.

    Mayes's and Yeager's honors mark the first Academic All-District honors for Saluki volleyball since 2009 (Jennifer Berwanger) and the first time SIU has had two honorees in the same season since 2006 (Berwanger, Johannah Yutzy). SIU hasn't had an Academic All-American since Britten Follett in 2002.
