|Volleyball's Anne Crocus named to America East all-conference team|
BOSTON, Mass.--Sophomore volleyball player Anne Crocus (Bethlehem, Pa./Freedom) was named to the America East all-conference team, the conference announced today. A strong blocker during each of her first two collegiate seasons, Crocus established her all-around game this season, becoming one of the Bearcats main offensive contributors.
Anne had a great year, said BU head coach Glenn Kiriyama. She steadily improved throughout the season. Her improvement from freshman year is clearly visible in her immense blocks and high hitting percentage.
Crocus led the America East conference this season with 1.55 blocks per game, a figure that also ranked ninth in the nation among Division I players. Her 58 solo blocks were the second-most among the national leaders and she ranked fifth all-time at Binghamton with 174 total blocks for the season. In addition, her .302 attack percentage was the second-highest season mark ever at Binghamton, and marked the first time in 12 years a BU spiker has eclipsed the .300 mark. Along the way, she broke the schools career record for block assists, surpassing Marnie Andrews (1992-95). Crocus currently has 186 block assists for her career.
Anne is a tenacious blocker at the net and an overpowering hitter at times, Kiriyama said.
Junior Alyson Coler from New Hampshire was named the conference Player of the Year and coach Jill Hirschinger was named Coach of the Year. Larissa Adomat of Northeastern was named the Rookie of the Year and teammate Kristin Ursillo was the Setter of the Year. Sasha Scott of New Hampshire earned Defensive Specialist of the Year honors.
