AUSTIN — All-American Micaya White, who helped lead the Texas volleyball team to a national runner-up finish last season, will appear in a court next month on a DWI charge, The Associated Press reported Monday.
According to Travis County state district court records, White is scheduled to appear on Aug. 4 after being charged with driving while intoxicated by University of Texas police following a March 18 traffic stop. The Austin American-Statesman reported that White failed a field sobriety test.
The 20-year old White, a 6-1 outside hitter from Frisco Centennial, was named the Big 12 Freshman of the Year and a first-team AVCA All-American last season. White led UT (27-5) with 479 kills, including 17 in a four-set loss to Stanford in the NCAA championship match, and she ranked second on the team in blocks (83) and third in digs (263).
Texas opens the season on Aug. 25 against Florida. Coach Jerritt Elliott said in a statement that they have been aware of the situation and are addressing it internally.
White was a first-team AVCA Under Armour All-American as a senior at Frisco Centennial in 2014. She redshirted in 2015.
