Seidenstricker & Kahlig Lead All-American Selections

2014 AVCA All-America Team

Wittenberg junior outside hitter Kara Seidenstricker (London, OH/Jonathan Alder) was a first-team selection to lead the list of NCAC student-athletes named to the 2014 American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-America Team.

Seidenstricker was the AVCA’s NCAA Division III Freshman of the Year and a first-team All-American in 2012, and she followed that up with a second-team selection a year ago. In 2014, Seidenstricker returned to the first team after leading the Tigers with 383 kills and 55 service aces. She also piled up 382 digs, which ranked second on the team, and 58 blocks, good for fourth. In addition, Seidenstricker was charged with just 15 reception errors in 436 attempts.

Wittenberg sophomore middle hitter Emily Kahlig (Coldwater, OH/Coldwater) earned her first All-American citation as a third-team selection after finishing the season with 194 kills, a .308 hitting percentage and 90 blocks.

In addition, Hiram junior outside hitter Lindsay Brewer (New Franklin, OH/Manchester) and DePauw junior setter Faith Rolwes (Chesterfield, MO/Villa Duchesne) were named to the honorable mention squad.
