Volleyball reaches Elite Eight; Weiss Twins honored

For the first time in more than a decade, the College of Saint Benedict volleyball team was one of eight teams in Division III still competing in the final week of the season. Hunter Weiss ’21 andMadison Weiss ’21 both earned AVCA First Team All-American honors as juniors. This marks the first time since 1990 that Saint Benedict volleyball has had two First Team All-American in the same year, and just the fourth time in program history. Additionally, Hunter was named the NCAA Elite 90 award winner. The Elite 90 award recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring an individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in their sport while also achieving the highest academic standards. The award is given to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA participating at the final site for each of the NCAA’s championships.
