SIOUX FALLS, S.D. –A total of six Summit League volleyball student-athletes have been selected to the 2018 Academic All-League team as voted on by a panel of Faculty Athletic Representatives and Sports Information Directors from the league's member institutions.

The 2018 Summit League tournament champion South Dakota and Purdue Fort Wayne led the way with two total selections.
