Lively and Torvi Earn ESPN Academic All-District Honors

Lively and Torvi Earn ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Honors  Springfield, Mass. - November 4, 2010 - The Springfield College women's volleyball team had two student-athletes honored for their success in the classroom as Heather Lively and Lauren Torvi were named to the ESPN Academic All-District team, which is selected by the College Sports Information Directors Association of America (CoSIDA).

Lively, who hails from Royalston, Mass., earned Second Team District I honors. The senior outside hitter currently owns a 3.52 grade point average as a health science major. Lively has been previously honored for her work in the classroom as he was selected to the 2009 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Academic All-Conference Team.

For the season, Lively leads the team with 306 kills to go along with 43 blocks. In her third year at Springfield, Lively reached the 1,000 career kill milestone earlier this season and has been named an All-American the past two years.

A native of North Smithfield, R.I., Torvi has had a breakout junior season for the Pride. The junior middle blocker took home Third Team District I honors as she currently holds a 3.60 grade point average in Sport Management.

This season, Torvi has posted 281 kills and ranks second in the conference in hitting percentage (.367) and first in blocks per game (1.14). On a national level, Torvi ranks 27th in the country with her hitting percentage and 28th in blocks per game.

This marks the first time that a Springfield College women's volleyball player has taken home academic all-district honors since MaryKathryn O'Neill earned the honor in 2006.
