For the third consecutive year, Lewis-Clark State College’s Anile Clemente and her coach Jen Greeny have been honored by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
Clemente was selected to the AVCA’s NAIA All-Northwest Region first team for the third straight year while Greeny was the region’s Coach of the Year. Both are now eligible for national honors.
Also, senior middle blocker Dani Barrett was an honorable mention selection.
Last season, Clemente was a first-team AVCA All-American, which marked the fifth time a Warrior volleyball player had earned first-team All America honors. The 5-foot-10 senior outside hitter from Sorocaba, San Paulo, Brazil again led the Warriors in a number of categories this season, including kills with 373 and service aces with 64. She was second on the team in hitting at .219 and digs with 421. She also earned first-team all-Frontier Conference honors for the third straight season.
Greeny again led the Warriors to a strong season. The Warriors finished the season with a 25-9 record, which gave Greeny at least 25 wins in each of her three seasons at the Warrior helm. She has led the Warriors to three straight conference regular season titles, including two outright, and three conference tournament championships. LCSC also has qualified for the NAIA national tournament all three seasons. She had a career record of 81-21 at LCSC.
Barrett led the Warriors with a .262 hitting percentage and was fourth on the team in kills at 217 and second in blocks at 63.4.
