ALABAMA VOLLEYBALL FRESHMAN EARNS AVCA ALL-REGION HONORS
Alabama volleyball freshman Alyiah Wells was recognized for her play this season, earning Honorable Mention All-South Region honors from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).
Wells is Alabama’s 14th honoree since the All-Region designation began in 2007 and is the first since Quincey Gary earned the honor in 2018.
Wells started all 29 matches this season at middle blocker with a team-leading .316 hitting percentage. Her 109 blocks led all SEC freshmen and ranked fifth overall, helping her earn SEC All-Freshman distinction.
All-Region honorees can now earn AVCA All-America honors, which will be announced later this month. The winners will be honored at the AVCA All-America/Players of the Year banquet Dec. 18-21 in Pittsburgh, Pa.
