PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State volleyball had three student-athletes recognized as CSC Academic All-District honorees as announced by the College Sports Communicators (CSC) Tuesday. Fifth-year seniors Magda Jehlářová and Iman Isanovic, as well as junior opposite hitter, Katy Ryan, were named to this year’s academic all-district team for having earned a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative grade point average while also appearing in at least 90 percent of contests this season.
The trio will now appear on Division I women’s volleyball Academic All-America ballot to be voted on this week by the nation’s college sports communicators.
Jehlářová became the NCAA leader in career blocks (769), while also setting a Washington State single-season record for hitting percentage (.424) in her final season at WSU. A master’s student in Management, Jehlářová was the 2022 Pac-12 Women’s Volleyball Scholar Athlete of the Year, and leaves Washington State as the program’s career leader in matches played (147), hitting percentage (.384), and block assists (624). The only five-time first-team all-conference selection in Pac-12 history, Jehlářová was the second overall pick in Monday’s Professional Volleyball Federation (PVF) inaugural collegiate player draft. The native of Prerov, Czech Republic, is now a three-time Academic All-District selection having earned her first-career Academic All-America honors in 2022.
Fifth-year graduate transfer from Arizona State, Iman Isanovic, made an instant impact on the court in her lone season on the Palouse, averaging 3.22 kills/set with a career-high .249 hitting percentage. A graduate student in Political Science, Isanovic was recognized as a WSU Student Athlete of the Month in September, a month that also saw the Cougars go 11-0 while winning streak with top-25 wins over BYU, Baylor, and Texas. In her first-career postseason run, Isanovic averaged 3.50 kills/set and 1.60 digs/set, while hitting .239. She finished the Cougars’ opening-round win over Grand Canyon, her NCAA Tournament debut, with 16 kills and a .375 hitting percentage to help lift WSU into the second round. Isanovic was a CSC Academic All-Disctrict and All-America honoree as a Sun Devil back in 2021.
