Sailfish Volleyball Players Named All-Americans
Palm Beach Atlantic Women’s Volleyball saw two players named All-Americans on Tuesday, as junior Ally Rohn and senior Sarah Kimmey were honored. Rohn was named an All-American by both the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) and the Division II Conference Commissioner’s Association (D2CCA) while Kimmey was honored by the AVCA.
Rohn led the team with 353 kills this season and posted a .269 attack percentage as she split time between outside hitter and setter. She also tallied 460 assists, 366 digs and 30 aces, ranking second on the team in each category. Her 12 triple doubles leaves her tied for the national lead as she surpassed the 1,000 mark for her career in kills, digs and assists this season.
In addition to her All-America awards this year, Rohn was named the Sunshine State Conference (SSC) Player of the Year as well as the D2CCA South Region Player of the Year. Additionally, the Cedar Lake, Indiana, native has been named to the SSC First Team, AVCA South Region Team and the D2CCA South Region First Team along with being named a CoSIDA Academic All-American. She was named to the AVCA All-America Third Team as a sophomore.
Kimmey was named an All-American Honorable Mention after a senior campaign that saw her battle injuries, missing six matches on the season. Still, she led the team with a .319 attack percentage and tallied 175 kills, surpassing 1,000 for her career in her final match. She posted 1.29 blocks per set which ranked second in the SSC and 16th nationally.
The Jacksonville, Florida, native leaves PBA as the school's leader in virtually all blocking categories during the Division II era. She was named an AVCA All-American First Team selection in 2016 and to the Third Team in 2015. She was also selected to the D2CCA All-American Second Team in 2016. This season, Kimmey was chosen by the SSC coaches as an SSC First Team Player and was also selected to the AVCA All-South Region Team as well as the D2CCA All-South Region First Team.
The Sailfish closed out the season at 26-4, falling in the South Region Semifinals to West Florida, 3-2.
