Three members of the Lawrence Technological University Volleyball Team have won all-conference honors from the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) and two have won all-academic honors from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
Outside hitter Kasey Clark (SR/Sacramento, CA) has been selected by the league’s 12 coaches for the All-Conference First Team for the second time. She becomes the first Blue Devil to win that league honor twice. Clark finished just behind Davenport University’s Hannah Stone in the voting for WHAC Player of the Year.
Clark collected two WHAC Player of the Week awards and two All-Tournament selections. She finished the season with 672 kills, ranking her first in the conference and second in the nation. She also ranked first in the conference for total points (745) and points per game (5.53). She wrapped up the year recording double-digit kills in 34 of 38 matches. In 19 games she was in double digits for both kills and digs.
For the second year in a row, Mary Armstrong (JR/Lakeland, MI) received All-Conference Honorable Mention. The middle hitter ranked first in the WHAC and 37th in the country for hitting percentage with .310. She also ranked seventh in the conference for points per game (3.40) and eighth for kills per game (2.90). Armstrong was an All-Tournament selection at the ACC Classic at the end of the season.
Representing Lawrence Tech on the Champions of Character Team was setter Josie Queary (SO/Midland, MI). Queary ranked third in the WHAC and ninth in the nation for total assists with 1,382. Queary currently holds a 3.77 GPA in architectural engineering. “Josie is a soft-spoken leader that exemplifies what a true student-athlete at LTU is,” said Coach Larry Wyatt.
Two members of the volleyball team won All-Academic honors for juniors and seniors. Delaney Large (JR/Sarnia, Ont) has a 3.56 GPA as a chemical biology major. Armstrong maintains a 3.4 GPA majoring in mechanical engineering.
