AU’s Hall earns Empire 8 volleyball all-conference honors

ALFRED, NY - Chelsea Hall (Grand Island, NY/Grand Island), a sophomore on the Alfred University women’s volleyball team, has earned Empire 8 all-conference honors.


Hall, an outside hitter, earned honorable mention from the conference. All-Empire 8 honors were determined by a vote by coaches, using players’ statistics from seven matches of conference round-robin tournament play.


Hall had 51 kills (.152 hitting percentage) and 11 service aces to lead the team in conference play. She also had 61 digs (second on the team) and 18 blocks (third). For all matches heading into this weekend’s season finale, Hall has 238 kills, a .204 hitting percentage and 38 service aces (all team highs) and has 284 digs and 66 blocks, both of which ranks second on the team.


Each season, the Empire 8 honors students-athletes from each conference school, who play on teams sponsored by the conference, with Sportsperson of the Year awards. Honorees, chosen by their coaches, exhibited outstanding sportsmanship in keeping with the conference’s mission of "competing with honor and integrity." Senior Emily Crosby (Fairport, NY/Fairport) is Alfred’s honoree from the women’s volleyball team.
