BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University middle blocker Emily Jepsen has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 8 NCAA Division II volleyball first team.
Jepsen, a senior from Kennewick (graduate of Kamiakin High School), is a business administration-finance major with a 3.85 (4.0 scale) grade point average. She now goes on the national ballot and is eligible for Academic All-America honors.
Jepsen, who received American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America honorable mention and Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year honors last season, ranks 10th among WWU career leaders in blocks with 315.
This season, Jepsen is listed among the top 10 GNAC leaders in four categories, being second in blocks at 1.06 (76), third in attack percentage at .309, eighth in points at 3.94 (283.5), and 10th in kills at 3.17 (228).
Earlier this week, Jepsen was named a GNAC academic all-star for the third straight year.
District 8 encompasses the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington; the Canadian province of British Columbia and the Yukon territory.
