Jerger Earns Second Consecutive CCSA Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – For the second consecutive season, Florida State beach volleyball’s Macy Jerger was named the Coastal Collegiate Sports Association (CCSA) Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the league office announced on Wednesday (April 18).

The junior from Fort Myers, Fla. is majoring in biology and currently holds a 3.87 GPA. The CCSA All-Academic selection gives Jerger her fifth academic award in her three years at FSU, as she took home the conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year award in 2017, appeared on the ACC Academic Honor Roll twice and made the CCSA’s Academic Honor Roll in 2016.

Jerger has led the team both in the classroom and on the sand, as she has played in 27 of the Seminoles’ 30 matches this season, posting a 21-6 record. She most recently set the program record for most career wins at the No. 3 position, with an overall record over 36-10 on the third court.

Alongside partner Sara Putt, the two have a perfect 11-0 record heading into the postseason, good for the second-best pairs record on the team. In their 11 matches together, the two have only given up one set, and have won in straight sets in their last eight games.

In order to be eligible for consideration on the CCSA All-Academic team, a student-athlete must have a cumulative 3.3 GPA (either during her undergraduate or graduate studies) and have one year of residence at the institution.
