By: UCLA Athletics

WOODLAND, CA– Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Executive Director Al Beaird announced on Tuesday that Spencer Rowe and Gonzalo Quiroga had been named MPSF All-Academic Scholar-Athletes for the 2014 men's volleyball season.

Rowe (3.84 gpa) earned honorable mention AVCA All-America honors following a senior season in which he established career-highs in kills (24), total blocks (7), digs (9) and points (27.0). He ranked 19th in the NCAA in hitting percentage (.375) and was 38th nationally in blocks per set (0.92). During MPSF league matches, the Trabuco Canyon, CA native rated eighth in hitting percentage with a .410 mark. Rowe graduated magna cum laude and was selected to the Capital One Academic All-District 8 At-Large teams in both 2013 and 2014.

Quiroga (3.09 gpa) was named a first-team AVCA All-America selection for the second straight season following his senior year. He finished as the school’s all-time leader in aces (194) after posting nine matches in 2014 with at least three and matching his personal high of six in one match during a win over BYU. Quiroga ranked fourth in the nation in service aces per set (0.50) and was ninth in the NCAA in points scored per set (4.50). The native of Argentina ranks sixth in career kills (1,387) and ninth in career digs (630) at the school. His total of 56 aces in his senior season equaled the school single-season mark (rally scoring era).

MPSF Scholar-Athletes must have at least a 3.00 grade point average and be at least a sophomore academically. They must also must have completed at least one full academic year at the school prior to the season for which the award is being received. All candidates must have competed in fifty percent or more of the team's competitions during the season.
