Nally Awarded Prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship

Nally Awarded Prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Springfield, Mass. - July 8, 2010 - Former Springfield College standout volleyball player AJ Nally was awarded a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, adding to his long list of accomplishments during his stay on Alden Street.

Nally, who was the 2010 AVCA Men's Division III National Player of the Year and a key component in the Pride's sixth Molten Division III Men's Invitational Volleyball National Championship, will receive a one-time grant of $7,500, which he will use to help finance his graduate work. Nally graduated in May with a degree in Sport Management.

The NCAA awards up to 174 postgraduate scholarships annually, 87 for men and 87 for women. The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition.

Nally was one of just three men's volleyball players in the entire country to earn the NCAA scholarship. The other two were Garrett Werner and Kawika Shoji, both who played at Stanford and won the NCAA Division I Men's Volleyball National Championship this season.

This season, Nally, who hails from Rochester, N.Y., put together one of the best seasons in the men’s volleyball program's history. His 466 kills was the fifth-highest total in single season history, while he set the program mark for most digs in a season with 305. An AVCA All-America First Team selection and the EIVA Division III Player of the Year, he was the lone outside hitter picked to the EIVA All-East First Team and was EIVA Division III All-Star selection.
