NMSU's Kelsey Brennan

When NMSU’s Kelsey Brennan isn’t dominating the net and giving players on opposing teams facials, she’s hitting the books. Playing any sport and maintaining a 3.52 is difficult at any level–congrats on the honor.

Las Cruces, NM – NM State Aggie volleyball player Kelsey Brennan has been named to the ESPN Academic All-America District VI second team as announced by the College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA), Nov. 8.

Brennan, from Monroe, Wash., is majoring in sports medicine and currently has a 3.52 GPA.

While excelling in the classroom, Brennan has played in 89 sets for the Aggies and ranks third in the WAC in hitting percentage at .347. Brennan has 209 kills and a team-high 70 blocks.

“It takes a lot of work, but if you love it, it is worth it,” Brennan said.  “You may lose some sleep some days, but sports medicine is something I really want to do and it will be well worth the time and effort in the end
