Bourque Named to Capital One Academic All-District Second Team

CORPUS CHRISTI – Texas A&M - Corpus Christi volleyball player Logen Bourque has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 7 Second Team, it was announced today. The teams are selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and Bourque is the first Islanders volleyball player to earn the honor since Beth Fionda was named to the third team in 2008.

"This is a great honor for Logen and I'm very excited to see her get recognized," head coach Tony Graystone said. "She's putting together an amazing senior season and has always been a high achiever in the classroom. Logen has been a true Islander in every regard throughout her career and this is just one more reason for us to be proud of her."

Bourque, a native of Houston, Texas, holds an overall 3.919 overall GPA in interdisciplinary studies and a 4.0 in major coursework. The senior has received her 4-8 teacher certification in mathematics and garnered Southland Conference Second Team All-Academic honors the past two years.

In addition to her performance in the classroom, Bourque has done just as much on the court. She is the Islanders' career assist leader with 4,316 assists and is currently ranked 18th in the nation in assists with 11.33 per set on the year. This season, Bourque has tallied 50 or more assists in seven matches, and has passed out 1,110 assists, which ranks third in Islanders history for a single season. She also sits in fourth place all-time in career digs with 1,045 and is currently ranked fourth with 73 career service aces.

Bourque was a Preseason Second Team All-Southland selection and was named the 2012 Islanders Volleyball Scholar-Athlete and Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Last season, she recorded her first career triple-double and was the first Islander to do so since 2005 with 10 kills (career high), 13 digs and 39 assists vs. Lamar (11/8). Additionally, she was a 2012 Chi Alpha Sigma inductee.

Megan Schwartz of Lamar was the other member of the Southland Conference to be named to the second team in District 7.

The Islanders will be back in action Saturday, Nov. 9, when they host Houston Baptist at the Dugan Wellness Center. First serve is set for 1 p.m.
