Birmingham, Ala. — The Southeastern Conference announced its 2022 volleyball postseason awards, as Tennessee’s Morgahn Fingall was voted SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The award was chosen by the league’s head coaches.

From Tennessee Athletics:

Off the court, she is majoring in kinesiology with a minor in public health. Fingall holds a 3.62 GPA and is currently enrolled in graduate-level classes while finishing up her remaining undergraduate coursework. She has been named to the dean’s list on five occasions and is a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

Last week, she earned CSC Academic All-District Team accolades for the first time in her career.

Fingall finished the regular season with a career-high and team-leading 458 kills, averaging an SEC-best 4.36 kills per set. The Fairfax, Virginia, native also averaged 5.10 points per set this season – tops in the conference.

The right-side attacker’s 458 mark is the fourth-highest single-season kill total in Tennessee history during the 25-point rally-scoring era. During the 25-point era, Fingall’s 4.36 kills per set average is second-best by a Lady Vol.

Nationally, Fingall ranks 12th in points per set and 17th in kills per set.
