04.30.14

Bears senior volleyball player Jenna Blujus has been named a SUNY Chancellor's Scholar-Athlete Award winner for the 2013-14 season. 

She was among the 21 conference athletes to receive the honor.

Blujus, a setter/right side from Baldwinsville, N.Y., became an All-SUNYAC First Team selection for the third straight season and cemented her legacy as one of the all-time best in Bears' volleyball history.

Her 2,808 career assists and 257 aces make her the all-time program leader in both categories.

Blujus demonstrated her all-around ability by ranking first on the team in aces with 72 and second on the team in assists (386), kills (217), and digs (391) to guide the Bears to consecutive postseason appearances.

She has become the only Bears' player to make the All-Conference First Team on three occasions.  Previously, Jamie Kraus (New Paltz, N.Y. / New Paltz) was also a two-time All-SUNYAC First Team selection and two-time ALL-SUNYAC Second Team selection.

For a SUNYAC student-athlete to be eligible, he or she must be a member of the first or second All-Conference or All-Tournament Team with a minimum GPA of 3.3 for at least three semesters. A student-athlete can only win the award once per sport.
