As the 2013 NAIA volleyball season came to a close this past week, the 2013 Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball All-American Teams have been announced. Senior setter Morgan Fox found a spot on the Honorable Mention list after a spectacular season.
Bethel junior Aubrey Husak advanced from the Capital One Academic All-District Team to the Capital One Academic First Team All-American roster. Capital One honors athletes in four different categories: NCAA DI, NCAA DII, NCAA DIII, and College (NAIA, Canadian, and two year institutions). Six different athletes are named to the first team as well as second, making of total of 12 athletes nationwide honored for their efforts during the 2013 season.
After day one at the NCCAA National Tournament, the Pilots volleyball team sat 1-1 in pool play with two matches remaining. Two wins would guarantee their spot in the semi-finals, but a four set loss to defending NCCAA Champions, McMurry, lessened the Pilots chance of surviving the cut. Nevertheless, the Pilots continued to battle and a 3-0 win over Roberts Wesleyan in the night cap left BC with a 2-2 record at the conclusion of pool play.
