YORK, PA – York College junior volleyball players Eryn Brady and Alexis Harbold were selected to the All-Capital Athletic Conference Second Team, the conference announced on Tuesday morning. The distinction is the first for both, who are the first Spartans to earn All-CAC honors since 2014.
Brady and Harbold are the 20th and 21st Spartans to garner All-CAC accolades.
Brady, an outside hitter, tallied 232 kills in 106 sets, averaging 2.19 kills per set, good for 16th in the conference. She also recorded 53 total blocks, 27 digs and 263 points. In 29 matches, Brady had nine with at least 10 kills, including five of the final seven matches of the season. In a 3-2 victory over Salisbury on October 20, she finished with a career-high 18 kills during a four-game stretch where she notched 55 of them.
Brady compiled an attack percentage of .237, the second-highest on the team, and she produced four games with a rating of .400 or better. Against King's on September 22, she accounted for nine kills in 20 total attacks, and had 10 more in just 19 attacks against Marymount (Va.) in another 3-2 win.
Harbold played in a conference-leading 111 sets for the Spartans to earn second-team mention. She led the conference with 580 digs, 21 more than the second-most, and just three others in the CAC were within 100 digs. Her 5.23 digs per set ranked second in the conference as she proved to be one of the best defensive players throughout the 10-team league.
Harbold also recorded 62 assists, 37 service aces and eight kills on 51 total attacks. She had 13 matches of at least 20 digs, including an incredible 52-dig performance, a school record, against Frostburg St. on October 14.
The duo helped York to a 19-10 record, including a winning season in CAC play, highlighted by a seven-match win streak through the middle portion of the season. The Spartans' 5-4 conference record was enough to earn the fifth seed in the CAC tournament, where they fell in the opening round to Salisbury in a tightly played 3-2 contest.
The Spartans are slated to return their entire lineup, including Brady and Harbold, for the 2018 season.
