"It is a well-deserved honor for Tori to earn All-American honors for the second year in a row," said Eph head coach Christi Kelsey. "She has been the ultimate team player for our program and is just one great example of the 13 amazing people that are part of our volleyball family this season."

Kelsey also noted, "Ryan and Raea earning Honorable Mention All-American status for the second year in a row is awesome as well. We have so many great pieces and what a great run this has been for our entire team this season."
