Senior Outside Hitter Named to Third Team

Senior Emily Wolfing

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior outside hitter Emily Wolfing (Mt. Airy, Md./South Carroll) has been named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America College Division Volleyball team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Wolfing, a physics and mathematics major with a 3.76 cumulative grade-point average, was named to the third team.

A two-time First Team All-ODAC selection and a two-time ODAC Volleyball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Wolfing led the Generals in 2004 with 454 kills. She also added 412 digs, 58 blocks and 53 service aces.

Wolfing, a 2004 AVCA Honorable Mention All-American, will graduate as W&L's all-time leader in career digs (1,557) and ranks second all-time in career kills (1,490) and career games played (471). Additionally, her 182 service aces are fourth all-time. During her time with the Generals, W&L posted a 124-24 (.838) overall record, won four ODAC Championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Second Round all four years.

With Wolfing's selection to the ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-America team, W&L improved its all-time total to 39 athletes honored since 1975. W&L had four athletes honored just last season.

The CoSIDA College Division consists of athletes from all NCAA Division II, III and NAIA schools across the United States.
