Long Beach, Calif. - Senior outside hitter Caitlin Ledoux and sophomore middle blocker Haleigh Hampton were both named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-America team as announced today.
Ledoux was selected as an All-American for the third time, becoming the eighth 49er so recognized. Ledoux led the 49ers in 2011 with 3.61 kills per set, and had 211 digs while playing all six rotations for the 49ers, and was selected despite missing six matches due to injury. She was one of just three 49ers to finish her career with over 1,500 kills and 1,000 digs.
Hampton had a breakout season with the 49ers as a sophomore. Leading the 49ers with 330 kills on .336 hitting, the middle blocker will again finish in the top five nationally in blocking after coming in third as a freshman. Hampton currently ranks third nationally with 1.61 blocks per set, and led the nation with 39 solo blocks, helping the 49ers rank second nationally in blocking as a team. The sophomore led the Big West in blocking and finished fifth in hitting percentage.
Hampton and Ledoux become the first pair of 49ers to earn All-America honors in the same season since Ledoux and Naomi Washington were both honored following the 2009 campaign.
