    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The America East Conference announced its Fall Honor Roll, which included 10 Providence College volleyball players. This is an increase for the women's volleyball team who saw eight members of the team named to the America East Fall Honor Roll last season. Students had to earn a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher for the fall semester. All five of the upperclassmen made the cut for the Friars including junior Cassie Muzzonigro (Gibsonia, Pa), and seniors Lauren Fletcher (Syracuse, N.Y.), Lauren Hendel (Lloyd Harbor, N.Y.), Carly Morrison (Larkspur, Calif.) and Shelagh Dolan (Westford, Mass.). Five freshman including Geralyn Gaines (Rochester Hills, Mich.), Mackenzie Ziegler (Portage, Wis.), Colleen McCollom (Indian Head Park, Ill.), Beth Hoyt (San Luis Obispo, Calif.) and Anna Russian (Round Rock, Texas) were named as well.

    Dolan, Hendel, Morrison, Muzzonigro and Russian earned a spot on Commissioner's Honor Roll, which is for student-athletes that obtain a 3.50 GPA.

    Earlier this year Fletcher was one of the seven volleyball student-athletes named to the 2011 America East Volleyball All-Academic Team.
