Scott Notches All-America Honor|
Dec. 12, 2012
CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati volleyball standout Jordanne Scott (Indianapolis, Ind./Lawrence North) was named to the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association Honorable Mention All-America team, as announced by the association on Wednesday. It is the third consecutive All-America bid for the senior who also was named to the Honorable Mention team in both 2010 and 2011.
“Again, I am very proud of Jordanne for this honor” said head coach Molly Alvey. “Such a small percentage of players are even considered for All-America teams, and fewer actually make it. This is a huge accomplishment for Jordanne and it is a testament to her hard work this season.”
Scott, a unanimous All-BIG EAST first team selection, led the team and ranked second in the conference with 517 kills and a 4.41 kills/set average. She finished second on the team with 228 digs and fourth with 65 blocks. Scott recorded eight double-doubles on the year, including four straight between Nov. 4 and Nov. 16. She hit a career-high 30 kills in the first round of the BIG EAST Championship, ranking second in the conference tournament record book.
The senior was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week on Oct. 15 and was a two-time BIG EAST honor roll recipient.
Scott’s honor marks the 13th time that a Cincinnati player had earned All-America status since 2003. She becomes the second three-time honoree in that time frame and the first since Jessie Nevitt garnered Honorable Mention awards in 2005, 2006 and 2008.
