Last week a number of Cal Lutheran administrators attended the 2015 NCAA Convention in Washington D.C. where legislation was a key topic of conversation, not only for Division I programs, but at the D-III level as well.
Six Cal Lutheran student-athletes were selected to The Star's College First Team of the Fall in 2014. Earning accolades were Allie Eason (volleyball), Robert Foy (football), Zach Graper (men's water polo), Nick Isham (football), Zack Larson(men's soccer) and Kali Youngdahl (women's soccer).
During the 2014 Cal Lutheran volleyball season a number of student-athletes reached memorable milestones, including Jena Chavez, Allie Eason, Michelle Lawrence, Sarah Pappas, Kennedy Peters and Nicki Tetherow.
For the second straight year Allie Eason finished the season with an AVCA All-America selection. In 2014 after guiding Cal Lutheran to a fifth straight SCIAC title and seventh consecutive NCAA appearance, the junior outside hitter was named to the First Team All-America.
In conjunction with the start of the NCAA Division III Volleyball Championships, the AVCA announced All-Region Teams and Regional Coaches of the Year. No. 3 Cal Lutheran earned three student-athlete selections while head coach Kellee Roesel hauled in her third career COY honor.
The second semifinal at the 2014 NCAA Division III Volleyball Thousand Oaks Regional was a rematch of the 2013 championship match and the result was the exact same in reverse. A year ago, CLU celebrated on Trinity’s court after a 3-1 victory and tonight the Tigers mimicked that action, ending the Regals’ season with 26-24, 25-18, 11-25, 25-21 wins for a 3-1 final result.
Before a loud and energetic home crowd, the Cal Lutheran volleyball team earned a 3-0 sweep of Whitworth at the 2014 NCAA Division III Volleyball Thousand Oaks Regional to advance to the Round of 32, which is set for tomorrow evening. The Regals put up 25-18, 25-19, 25-17 victories against a hungry and tenacious Pirates’ team tonight to wrap up a full day of volleyball inside of the Gilbert Arena.
