Five Tigers Earn All-NCAC Honors

Greencastle, Ind.- After a runner-up finish in the North Coast Athletic Conference tournament the DePauw volleyball team had five student-athletes earn all-NCAC honors for their performances during the 2014 season.

Junior setter Faith Rolwes was named to the first team for the third-straight season. Junior libero Keely McGrath and sophomore middle hitter Elisabeth Wilson garnered second team honors, while senior middle hitter Mary Kate Etling and junior outside hitter Lauren Falotico were honorable mention selections.

Rolwes continued to excel for the Tigers, leading the team to a 26-10 overall record and a 7-1 conference mark. She leads the NCAC with a .391 hitting percentage and is second with 9.79 assists per set. Additionally, Rolwes averages 1.39 kills and .60 blocks per set. This season, she was a two-time NCAC player of the week selection and became just the second Tiger to be named AVCA Division III Player of the Week.

The pairing of McGrath and Wilson are making their second-straight appearances on the NCAC second team. McGrath, who also earned honorable mention honors in 2012, led the conference with 679 digs, averaging 5.26 per set. Wilson paced the conference with .98 blocks per set and is second on the team with 2.43 kills per set.

Etling, a first team selection in 2012, is third on the team, averaging 2.38 kills per set, while averaging .58 blocks per set. Falotico, an honorable mention selection in 2013, was fourth in the conference with 332 kills, adding .29 blocks per set.

DePauw's 26-10 regular season record was strong enough to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III tournament for the second-straight season. The Tigers play Chicago on Thursday, November 13, at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis.
