NEAC Announces Women's Volleyball All-Conference Selections

The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) concluded the women’s volleyball season and is proud to announce the all-conference award winners. The NEAC consists of eleven women’s volleyball programs and will honor twenty-one women on the three all-conference teams.

In post-season play, the University of Dallas took the NEAC Championship and the NCAA Women’s Volleyball automatic qualifier in three games over SUNY Institute of Technology. Penn State – Harrisburg coach Bob Creason was selected by his peers as NEAC Coach of the Year for leading his Nittany Lions to a 20-13 overall record. SUNY Institute of Technology’s Juleah Vedder was selected as NEAC Player of the Year for the second consecutive year. Vedder, a sophomore outside hitter, played in 97 games and accumulated team-highs of 433 kills (4.46/game), 314 digs (3.24/game), and 69 aces (0.71/game) on the year. Her dominance earned her four NEAC Student-Athlete of the Week awards this season and helped her Wildcats return to the Championship game for the second consecutive year.
