Lexington, Ky. – Clark University volleyball standout Rachel Webb (Celina, Texas) has been named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-New England Honorable Mention team it was announced on Monday morning.
It marks the second consecutive season in which the sophomore setter collects all-region honors. It also comes following the best season in Clark program history and Webb was a huge reason for that success.
She set the school record for assists in a single season (1,166) and in just two seasons has quickly climbed the ladder for career assists. Her 2,063 are a little more than 1,000 shy of Kate Weiss' school record of 3,073 set between 1999-02.
This season was sensational for Webb, who finished the season ranked first in the conference in total assists 1,166 and second in assists per set (9.64).
Along the way as the Cougars marched their way into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history, Webb was racking up mind-boggling numbers. Consider that she had 30 or more assists in 24 of the 33 matches this season and had 50 or more three times – tied for the most in the league. Those three matches came against Endicott (54), Amherst (50) and Montclair State (54) – all teams who advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
During a three match stretch in postseason play against Springfield in the conference semifinals, MIT in the conference finals and then the Red Hawks in the NCAA Tournament – she had three double-doubles, averaging 43 assists and 11.3 digs.
