LEXINGTON, Ky. – Graduate student middle blocker Emily Ryan was named to the AVCA East Region Honorable Mention on Tuesday morning. This is the 15th consecutive season that the Seminoles have had an athlete on the all-region team or had an honorable mention selection.
“I am excited and honored to receive this award,” Ryan said. “I hope I brought more than just statistics for this team, and I’m glad I took the opportunity to close my college career on a strong note.”
A transfer from UCLA, Ryan made an immediate impact in her one season with the Seminoles. Playing in every set this season, Ryan led the team in blocks with 119 and 1.08 blocks per set which ranked 10th in the ACC. Ryan finished the year with 236 kills with a .322 hitting percentage which were both career highs.
