Trio of Tigers Earn All-NCAC Honors: Lenderman is Top Libero

Cleveland, Ohio - In voting by the North Coast Athletic Conference coaches, three Tigers have earned all-conference honors including one of the league's top awards.

Senior libero Rachael Lenderman (Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale Central) was voted the NCAC Libero of the Year in addition to being named to the second team. Lenderman recorded 459 digs on the season for an average of 5.16 per set which ranked second during conference regular season play.

Joining Lenderman on the second team were junior setter Keegan Kollias (Zionsville, Ind./Zionsville) and senior middle hitter Elisabeth Wilson (Carterville, Ill./Carterville).

Kollias, like Lenderman, is a first-time all-NCAC choice. She led DePauw with 869 assists for a 9.76 per set average which was third in the conference. Kollias also averaged 1.09 kills and 2.98 digs per set.

Wilson earned her fourth straight second team selection while leading the team and the conference with 1.06 blocks per set. She also was sixth in the conference with a .270 hitting percentage while averaging 2.51 kills each set.

DePauw, 24-4, won its opening two matches at the NCAC Tournament and faces Wittenberg tonight at 7 p.m. for the tournament title.
