Olivia Bailey and Betsi Metter were named to the All-Academic team.
LMU will honor its four graduating seniors before Saturday's match against San Francisco, the only match on the schedule this week for LMU.
Head Coach Tom Black will serve in the same capacity for the sand volleyball team that will be added this spring.
