Kansas University junior middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc became the first KU volleyball player to earn All-America honors after she was named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s second team on Wednesday.
“It’s a very neat deal for her individually, but it’s huge for our program,” KU coach Ray Bechard said. “When you do the right things, you train hard and your team has success, then some of these awards are going to come. We told her a lot of things that we thought she could be here. We didn’t talk about All-American, but we knew she could be a lot of great things and she certainly has been.”
Jarmoc led the 2012 Jayhawks to the winningest season in program history (26-7), collected more home wins (17) than any other year, earned a program-best No. 6 RPI ranking, was ranked nine straight weeks in the Top 25 and posted its highest Big 12 Conference finish (third, 12-4).
