Frost, Owens Volleyball Team Headline OCCAC All-Academic Selections

Toledo, Ohio—The Owens Community College athletic department placed 11 student-athletes on the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference’s (OCCAC) Fall All-Academic team.

Incredibly, 10 of the 12 student-athletes on the Owens women’s volleyball roster earned recognition, while women’s basketball freshman forward Olivia Frost (North Baltimore/North Baltimore, Ohio) rounded out the list.

In order to make the team, a student-athlete must complete 12 credit hours in the fall semester with at least a 3.30 GPA. Prior to this year, the conference had one team for the whole school year, and a student-athlete had to have completed at least 24 credit hours with a 3.30 cumulative GPA.

Not only did 10 volleyball student-athletes achieve the standard this fall, but six of them did so with 4.00 GPAs. That list includes freshman outside hitter Erika Angstmann (St. Marys Memorial/St. Marys, Ohio), sophomore defensive specialist Brooke Gyori (Clay/Oregon, Ohio), freshman middle blocker Devon Heitkamp (New Bremen/New Bremen, Ohio), freshman outside hitter Madison Lammers (New Knoxville/New Knoxville, Ohio), sophomore outside hitter Annie Lindeman (Ottoville/Ottoville, Ohio) and sophomore middle blocker/outside hitter Ashley Pleiman (Fort Loramie/Fort Loramie, Ohio).

Pleiman was previously named the outstanding graduate in the business administration concentration during fall graduation. In addition to her, Gyori, Lindeman and Tylutki also made the 2015-16 OCCAC All-Academic team.

The other four who made the team in the fall include freshman setter Carrigan Gray (Liberty-Benton/Findlay, Ohio) with a 3.78 GPA, freshman right side hitter Olivia Hermiller (Ottawa-Glandorf/Ottawa, Ohio) with a 3.46 PGA, sophomore middle blocker Tyanna Smith (Bowling Green/Bowling Green, Ohio) with a 3.52 GPA and sophomore setter/right side hitter Christine Tylutki (Monroe/Monroe, Mich.) with a 3.56 GPA.

Gyori (University of Tennessee at Martin, NCAA Division I), Smith (Shawnee State University, NAIA) and Lindeman (Shawnee State University, NAIA) have already signed to play at four-year schools. Tylutki and Pleiman are still considering their options.


Frost and the Owens women’s basketball team is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation with a 22-0 overall record and a 9-0 record in OCCAC play. The team is back in action tomorrow at Lorain County Community College beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Frost is averaging 5.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game for Owens. She is shooting 41.1 percent from the field, 31.6 percent from 3-point range and 85.7 percent from the foul line. Despite missing 10 games recently due to injury, she has started six of 11 games played.
