With her second-straight AVCA Second-Team All-America honor, Smolinski becomes just the second player in program history to earn a pair of AVCA All-America honors in their career, as Kerri Camuso took home first-team honors in 1995 and was named to the second-team in 1996.
Earlier this season, Smolinski became the seventh player in program history to receive NEWMAC Player of the Year recognition. The senior outside hitter had another remarkable campaign, totaling a team-best 370 kills on a .316 clip. She led the team with 328 digs and has added 29 aces and 29 blocks and reached a significant milestone this season, becoming just the fourth player in program history with 1,500 kills.
Just the fourth NEWMAC Rookie of the Year in program history, Holt burst onto the collegiate volleyball scene this year. Controlling the middle throughout the season, she registered 312 kills at a sensational .368 clip and had just as big of an impact defensively, totaling 121 blocks, averaging 1.06 per set.
McGayhey had a breakout sophomore campaign for the Pride on the right side. This season, she accounted for 266 kills while hitting .373, including 13 matches where she hit .500 or better, and ranked third on the team with 49 blocks.
Miller directed one of the most efficient offenses in the country this year, totaling 984 assists, averaging 9.11 per set, to go along with 188 digs, 30 blocks, and 20 aces. Under her leadership, the Pride hit .297, the second-best single season team hitting percentage in program history.
