Lee Garners All-Conference Recognition And One Of Four To Earn Spot on Academic Honor Roll

Lee Named All-Conference For The Second Straight Year

LANCASTER, PA – Junior middle hitter Jenny Lee (Wilmington, DE/Mount Pleasant) earned All-Centennial Conference honorable mention status in a vote conducted by the conference's volleyball head coaches. 

Four Shorewomen garnered a spot on the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll.  Joining Lee on the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll from the volleyball team are senior outside hitter Alyssa Forget (River Vale, NJ/Pascack Valley), sophomore outside hitter Emily Hoyle (Santa Rita, Guam/Guam) and sophomore setter Lauren White (Huntingtown, MD/Huntingtown).

Lee, an honorable mention selection in 2010, had 249 kills, 2.57 kills per set, 139 digs, 75 service aces, 63 blocks for Washington this season.  She led the team in aces, blocks and solo blocks as she had 30 solo blocks.  The junior was second on the team in kills and kills per set and tied for second on the team in assisted blocks with 33.  Lee led the Centennial Conference service aces and aces per set (0.77) and ranked sixth in blocks.

She is just the second WC volleyball player to earn all-conference honors on two occasions, joining Katherine O'Brien '08.  O'Brien was an all-conference second team pick in 2006 and 2007.

Forget, a biology major, was named to the academic honor roll for the third consecutive year.  Lee, an environmental studies major, qualified for the second straight campaign.  Hoyle, a political science major, and White, a psychology major, both earned a spot for the first time.

To be named to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll, a student-athlete must be a sophomore, junior or senior; a starter or key reserve on his or her team; and carry at least a 3.40 cumulative grade-point average. A key reserve is defined as a reserve who appeared in at least 50% of his or her team's contests.

The Shorewomen volleyball squad finished 16-12 in 2011 and netted their first winning season since 1993.
