AVCA Honors W&L's M.A. Boles for Second Time
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The American Volleyball Coaches Association announced its annual all-region teams and for the second year in a row Washington and Lee sophomore M.A. Boles (Houston, Texas/St. John's) was an Honorable Mention All-South Region selection.
Boles, who was the 2011 Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Year, led the ODAC with 415 kills from her outside hitter position. She also ranked first in the league in attacks (1,156), second in kills/set (3.71), sixth in service aces (44), eighth in digs (351) and 12th in hitting percentage (.232). She played in a team-high 112 sets and added 23 blocks and 19 assists.
For her career, Boles has already tallied 839 kills and 702 digs, putting her on pace to become the fifth player at W&L to record at least 1,000 career kills and 1,000 career digs.
An honorable mention all-region selection, as well as the AVCA South Region Rookie of the Year in 2010, Boles becomes the first General to earn postseason recognition from the AVCA in back-to-back years since Rachael Phillips '10 was honored in 2007 and 2008.
The Generals finished the 2011 season with an overall record of 27-8 and a 10-0 mark in the conference. W&L's season came to an end with a 3-1 loss to Randolph-Macon in ODAC Championship.
