ST. LOUIS - Senior Danielle Rygelski has been named a third-team All-American by Volleyball Magazine. It is her second All-America accolade after earning an AVCA All-American nod last week. 

"Danielle is deserving of this high honor," Saint Louis head volleyball coach Kent Miller said. "It is rare to have a player lead the nation in a number of statistical categories and set NCAA records. Danielle has worked hard throughout her career to be her best on and off the court. We are thrilled that she has been recognized with this award."

This season Rygelski set an NCAA record with 715 kills, most for a player in the 25-point rally-scoring era. She is the second player in the same era to record more than 6.00 kills per set (6.01). Rygelski still leads the NCAA in total kills (715), kills per set (6.01), points (808.0) and points per set (6.79). She also ranks third in aces (65) and fourth in total attacks (1,620). Rygelski earned a record-setting seven Atlantic 10 Player of the Week awards en route to the 2016 Atlantic 10 Volleyball Player of the Year award.

Coincidentally, Rygelski recently wrote a column for Volleyball Magazine documenting her career at SLU. Read the story here
