Augie All American

Augie All American

Augustana senior Holly Hafemeyer earned American Volleyball Coaches Association first
team All-America honors and junior Courtney Ysker was named an All-America
honorable mention in a release from the AVCA. This is Hafemeyer’s
second consecutive year being listed as an All-America recipient — she earned
third team honors last year — and Ysker’s first All-America accolades.

A middle blocker from Faribault, Minn., Hafemeyer
became the seventh different Viking to earn All-America honors one season ago,
and now becomes the sixth Viking to earn first team All-America honors, and
third Viking to earn a spot on the AVCA All-America team in consecutive years.
Hafemeyer was named to the AVCA All-Central Region first team, Daktronics
All-Central Region first team, and All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference
first team for her performance this season.

Hafemeyer led Augustana’s offense in 2013 to their
first 20-win season in five years. Starting all 30 matches, Hafemeyer tallied
445 kills (4.32 per set) while maintaining a .362 attack percentage. Living up
to her title of middle blocker, Hafemeyer tallied 117 total blocks (21 solo, 96
assist) for a 1.14 blocks per set average which ranked second in the NSIC.
Hafemeyer’s attack kills per set average ranked second in the NSIC, ninth in
the NCAA, her attack percentage was slotted fifth in the NSIC, 18th in the
NSIC, and her points per set average of 5.08 ranked second in the NSIC, fifth
in the NCAA.
