Fourth Shorewoman To Earn Consecutive All-CC Honors; Horan Named To All-Sportsmanship Team
LANCASTER, Pa. – Junior outside hitter Kaitlyn Marino (Redding, Conn./Joel Barlow) has been named to the All-Centennial Conference honorable mention for volleyball in a vote conducted by the conference's 11 head coaches. This is the second time Marino has garnered all-conference honors as she garnered a second team selection last fall and is the fourth WC volleyball player to earn a spot on consecutive all-conference teams.
Marino led the Shorewomen in kills (188), kills per set (2.76), points (239) and points per set (3.5), second in aces per set (0.46) and ranked fourth on the squad in aces (31), blocks (38) and assisted blocks (36). In the Centennial, she was eighth in points per set.
It is the eighth straight year that the Shorewomen have had at least one representative on the all-conference team for volleyball. Since 2010, Washington has had nine of its 16 All-Centennial selections.
Marino joins Katherine O'Brien '08 (2006-07), Jenny Lee '13 (2010-11) and Kristin Lee '16 (2012-15) as the four WC players to repeat as an all-conference pick.
Also announced by the conference was the All-Sportsmanship Team for volleyball and representing the Shorewomen on the team for the first time is senior setter Taylor Horan (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma). Each Centennial Conference member institution was permitted to nominate one student-athlete who exemplifies the best in sportsmanship for the All-Sportsmanship Team. Nominations were submitted by the head coaches.
