Dec. 14, 2016


LEXINGTON, Ky.-- Tennessee sophomore middle hitter Erica Treiber was named to the AVCA Honorable Mention All-America Team for the first time, the volleyball coaches association announced Wednesday.

Treiber was named to the AVCA All-Southeast Region Team earlier this month and is now the 18th Tennessee player to earn All-America honors and the 16th to do so since 2004. Libero Ellen Mullins was the last Vol to earn honorable mention accolades, doing so in 2012 and 2013.

A native of Unionville, Michigan, Treiber led the Vols offensively with a .348 hitting percentage while averaging 2.58 kills per set. She was also the team leader with 21 aces (0.21 aces/set) and 107 blocks (1.06 blocks/set).

She ranked seventh in the SEC in hitting percentage and ninth in blocks per set.

Treiber recorded a career-best 17 kills in a five-set match against South Carolina and had a pair of three-ace matches during the season. She led the Vols to a 3-1 win over No. 23 Kentucky in the home finale with eight kills, three aces, five blocks and three digs.

Through the first two years of her career, Erica Treiber ranks second in Tennessee program history in hitting percentage (.351) and tied for third in blocks per set (1.10).
