Two Players Named All-State, Dadio Campbell Named Coach of the Year

DANVILLE, Va. -- The honors continue to roll in for the Washington and Lee ODAC Champion volleyball squad as two Generals were named to the Virginia Sports Information Director's College Division All-State team.

Freshman middle blocker Lindsay Ruckert (Metairie, La./Sacred Heart) was named to the first team and junior outside hitter Nancy Reinhart (Louisville, Ky./Sacred Heart) was named to the second team. Head Coach Terri Dadio Campbell was named the Coach of the Year.

Ruckert has also earned First Team All-ODAC, ODAC Tournament MVP, and ODAC Rookie of the Year honors after leading W&L in kills (318) and hitting percentage (.344). Her 77 total blocks tied for the team lead and she was second on the team in digs (307).

Her team set a new school record for winning percentage (.928) and tied the school's longest winning streak by emerging victorious in her final 16 matches.
