Falcone, Pelletier, and O'Leary Earn AVCA All-America Honors

2013 Springfield College Men's Volleyball All-America Selections Lexington, Ky. - April 22, 2013 - Three members of the Springfield College men's volleyball team were honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) as they were named to the 10th annual AVCA Men's Division III All-America Teams on Monday. Greg Falcone and Mike Pelletier earned first-team honors, while Jimmy O'Leary took home second-team recognition.

Falcone headlines the year's recipients as the only four-time AVCA All-American after being selected to the second team in 2010, 2011 and the first team in 2012. The 6-8 middle blocker from Lindenhurst, N.Y. ranks first nationally in hitting percentage (.535), fourth blocks per set (1.23) and in the top-20 in aces per set (0.44). He has powered Springfield to the top-seed in the upcoming NCAA Championship for the second-straight season.

Pelletier, who hails from Burnt Hills, N.Y., has had a tremendous senior season to earn AVCA All-America accolades for the first time in his career. One of the top players for the top-ranked team in the nation, Pelletier leads the Pride averaging 3.23 kills per set as he has totaled a team-best 300 kills. He ranks second on the team in aces (28), third in digs (127) and blocks (69).

In his junior campaign, O'Leary has been a dynamic force in the middle as he picked up his first-ever AVCA All-America honor. The 6-6 middle blocker from Reading, Pa. enters the NCAA Championship ranked nationally in the top-10 in blocks per set with 1.07 and is third on the team with 175 kills while hitting at a .514 clip.
