This year’s NESCAC women’s volleyball player of the year is Lisa Drennan ’09, for the second time in her college volleyball career, and Ellie Healy ’10 was also named to the all-NESCAC squad as a second-team choice.
Over her four years at Wesleyan, Drennan amassed 1,865 kills in 379 sets. She ranks first all time at Wesleyan in average kills (4.92), second all-time in total kills, and fourth all time with a .298 hitting efficiency. She also averaged 2.73 digs, 0.68 blocks and 0.46 aces per set during her career.
…Healy currently ranks second in the conference in average assists with 10.18 per set, a figure that ranks her 23rd nationally in Division III. She led the conference a year ago with an 11.35 figure but sets have been reduced from 30 points to 25 points for a victory this season, accounting for the lower average.
Wesleyan closed out the year with a 21-7 mark and an 8-2 NESCAC record, which earned the second seed in the NESCAC tournament for the team. A win over Amherst in the regular-season finale gave the Cardinals a share of this year’s Little Three title. It was the team’s fourth straight winning season, and ninth in the last 10 seasons.
Congratulations, Lisa and Ellie.
