SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Union College volleyball student-athlete Chandler Gray (JR/Alexandria, Ky.) has been named a Daktronics-NAIA Volleyball Scholar Athlete for the 2014 season, the organization announced today.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.

Gray, a junior, earned a spot as a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete after posting a 3.72 GPA as a Psychology major at Union College.

On the court, Gray saw playing time in every match on the year, and was one of the key pieces on a squad that went 30-10, won the 2014 Appalachian Athletic Conference Tournament, and earned a bid to the NAIA National Tournament.

In all, Gray was one of the AAC’s top setters on the year, ending with 594 assists (a 4.01 per set average). At the end of the season, those two marks were in the top 10 of the entire AAC, with both coming in seventh overall on the year.
