The NESCAC just posted the All-Conference Team, and both Becca and Hannah were honored by the Conference. Becca was the only underclassmen represented on either team, which was comprised of all juniors and seniors, as she was honored by being named to the First Team this year after being 2nd Team last year along with Co-Rookie of the Year honors. Here is what they said about both:
"Sophomore outside hitter Becca Raffel did it all for Middlebury this season. The 2014 NESCAC Co-Rookie of the Year is second in the league with 357 kills and third with 3.80 kills per set while hitting .257. She also posted 224 digs en route to nine double-doubles to go along with 31 service aces.""Middlebury junior setter Hannah Blackburn was the remaining repeat selection, as she landed on the Second Team for the second straight year."
This is a great honor for both of these players, as it's very tough to be named one of the top players in a Conference as deep in talent as the NESCAC. Congrats to both of you!
Becca was also our selection for the NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team, which is a very nice honor voted on by her teammates, so congrats to Becca for that honor also!
