CLEMSON, SC – The President’s Commission on the Status of Women at Clemson University selected Clemson volleyball player Marija Zoric as the recipient of the 2003 Outstanding Woman Award in the Undergraduate Student category. Zoric was honored today at a reception, where President and Mrs. Barker presented the award.

The outstanding woman award is given to a person who best exemplifies the very fine women on this campus, and the excellence that women bring to their jobs, their professions and their communities.

Zoric was also named the recipient of the Susan Delony Student Academic Achievement Award. She was honored on Tuesday night at a banquet sponsored by the Office of the President, Division of Student Affairs and Student Government.

The recipient must maintain high scholarly achievement and ambition through academic record and commitment to field of study through presentation, research or participation.

During the 2002 season, she led the team in total blocks with 147 and blocks per game with a 1.20 average, ranking her second in the conference. The middle hitter ranks third on Clemson’s all-time leader career list in blocks per game with a 1.13 average.
