2013 AVCA Division II First-Team All-America

 

Marissa Cox, a 6-0 opposite for Washburn University, is a junior from Richmond, Kan. Cox's .340 hitting percentage and 3.73 kills per set places her second in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. The First-Team All-MIAA selection was named MIAA Hitter of the Week five teams in 2013. Cox is a first-time AVCA All-American.

 

Danielle Dahle, a 6-1 outside hitter for UC San Diego, is a sophomore from La Mesa, Calif. She led the Tritons in kills per set (3.25) and points per set (3.65) while also tallying 338 digs and 47 blocks. It is because of Dahle's consistent play of 15 double-doubles that kept UC San Diego in the top-25 of the AVCA Coaches Poll all season, reaching as high as eighth. Dahle earns AVCA All-American honors for the first time.

 

Taylor Goodness, a 6-0 outside hitter for the University of Central Missouri, is a senior from Salina, Kan. A unanimous First-Team All-MIAA selection, she led the strong conference with 4.04 kills per set and eighth with a .303 hitting percentage. In the Jennies NCAA Regional Quarterfinal win over Nebraska-Kearney, the senior tallied 22 kills on .367 hitting and added seven digs. Capping her fine career, Goodness can add "AVCA All-American" to her volleyball resume.

 

Holly Hafemeyer, a 6-3 middle blocker for Augustana College (SD), is a senior from Faribault, Minn. There aren't many players who dominate the net quite like Hafemeyer, placing second in the loaded NSIC in kills (4.32/s), blocks (1.14), and points per set (5.08). She also became the 21st Augustana volleyball player to hit 1,000 kills and ranks ninth all-time with 1,193 career kills as a Viking. Hafemeyer is now a two-time AVCA All-American.

 

Anna Hilton, a 6-0 opposite for Wingate University, is a redshirt-senior from Hickory, N.C.

Hilton is a two-time AVCA All-American after earning third-team accolades a year ago.

 

Samantha Hutchinson, a 5-7 libero for Western Washington University, is a junior from University Place, Wash.

Kayla Koenecke, a 5-9 opposite for Concordia University, St. Paul, is a senior from Delano, Minn. After being named to her fourth AVCA All-Region team, there is no doubt Koenecke will go down as one of the greatest to wear the uniform. Her .405 hitting percentage is tops in the nation, and her career .390 attack clip places her first all-time for the Golden Bears. She is also seventh in the NSIC averaging 3.67 kills per set while playing solid defense, placing second on the team in digs per set (3.53) and third in total blocks (77). Koenecke is now a four-time AVCA All-American, earning first-team accolades for the third consecutive year.

 

Amanda Konetchy, a 5-7 setter for Concordia University, St. Paul, is a senior from Victoria, Minn. Many of the hitters that have come through the program certainly have Konetchy to thank. She leads the country averaging an astounding 13.22 assists per set, and is largely responsible for the Golden Bears as a team rank No. 1 nationally in kills per set (15.58), assists per set (14.81) and hitting percentage (.340).

Kate Lange, a 6-1 outside hitter for the University of Minnesota Duluth, is a senior from Hibbing, Minn.

The Daktronic Central Region Player of the Year was the only player in all NCAA Divisions to earn Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors twice in 2013. This is Lange's third consecutive season earning AVCA First-Team All-American honors.

 

Brenna McIntosh, a 6-0 middle blocker for Cal State San Bernardino, is a sophomore from Yorba Linda, Calif.

She earned the California Collegiate Athletic Association's Player of the Year honor leading all outside hitters in the west region with a .334 hitting percentage and ranked among the top five in the CCAA in kills (421) and points per set (4.30). Her 443 kills broke the single-season school record for kills by a sophomore set in 2009, which was previously 401. Seitz is a first-time AVCA All-American.

 

Melanie Wannamaker, a 6-1 middle blocker for the Colorado School of Mines, is a senior from Kingwood, Texas. She ranks in the top-5 nationally in hitting percentage (.386) and points per set (5.20) to lead the Orediggers into the NCAA Tournament. She recorded double-digit kills in 31 of 32 matches, including a 23-kill performance in the NCAA Regional Semifinal match against Angelo State. Wannamaker is now a two-time AVCA All-American award after making it onto the second team in 2012.

 

Berkley Whaley, a 6-0 outside hitter for the University of Tampa, is a sophomore from St. Petersburg, Fla. In just her sophomore year, Whaley put the Spartans on her back en route to their fifth consecutive NCAA South Region Title.
