13 Sea Dragons Take 1st at Badger Region Championshios!
CLEVELAND, Ohio - University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh libero Christina Cahoon, a 2007 graduate of Watertown High School, has been named the 2009 Nfinity/American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division III National Player of the Year.
The award was announced recently at the 2009 NCAA Division III Championship awards banquet in Cleveland, Ohio, which was held in conjunction with the NCAA Division III Championship, being held this weekend on the campus of John Carroll Univer-sity.
The junior defensive whiz is coming off a brilliant performance in last week's NCAA Division III Midwest Regional where she was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, after helping the Titans capture their second regional championship in as many seasons.
Entering this weekend's NCAA national quarterfinals, Cahoon leads the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Confer-ence (WIAC) and is nationally-ranked in digs per set, scooping up an average of 6.11 balls per stanza. Cahoon has racked up 862 digs thus far and also possesses a strong serve, leading the squad in service aces with 46 on the season.
With offensive stars typically making the headlines, Cahoon's efforts have not gone unnoticed. She is a two-time AVCA Division III First-Team All-America selection, a two-time All-WIAC First-Team selection and has twice landed a spot on the All-WIAC Defensive Team. For her career, the Watertown Wis. native has amassed 2,136 digs and 161 service aces.
Cahoon's contributions have aided Wisconsin-Oshkosh's recent successes in the Division III volleyball world. The Titans, who own a 38-2 record to date, have compiled a total of 110 wins and have only suffered 11 losses since Cahoon first donned a jersey three seasons ago. With Cahoon anchoring the back row, Wisconsin-Oshkosh turned in its first perfect conference mark (8-0) since 1990 and captured its second consecutive (10th overall) WIAC title in 2009.
UW-Oshkosh rallied to defeat Christopher Newport University Thursday 21-25, 25-13, 25-14, 25-21 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Women's Volleyball Championship.
