LANCASTER, Pa. – Taylor Bauman (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle), a rising senior on the McDaniel volleyball team, has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) female Scholar-Athlete of the Year, announced on Wednesday.

The Conference recognizes a Scholar-Athlete of the Year in each of its 24 championship sports to a junior or senior member of the All-Conference team with the highest cumulative grade-point average. The overall Scholar-Athletes of the Year are presented to the student with the highest GPA among the 12 men and 12 women's winners.

Bauman is the second Green Terror athlete in the three-year history of the award to earn the honor.

A libero, Bauman finished the season with a single-season program-record 580 digs. She also led the team with 61 service aces. Her 5.63 digs per set also paced the Centennial Conference (CC) while her 0.59 aces per set ranked third.

A three-time all-conference selection that includes a second-team selection this season, she led the Green Terror (19-9, 6-4 CC) into the conference semifinals and an ECAC bid.

She was named to the CC Academic Honor Roll each of the last two seasons and was the conference's Scholar-Athlete of the Year this fall with a 4.0 grade-point average in biology. The captain has been named to the Dean's List in each of the previous four semesters and was tabbed to the McDaniel Green and Gold Honor Roll last year. She was also named a second-team Academic All-American in the fall.
