Media Contact: Dave Costello, 815-921-4516The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has announced its 2012 All-Americans for Division III volleyball and Rock Valley College's Breahna Stewart has been named to the first team.
Stewart was part of the Golden Eagles team that brought home the NJCAA Division III national championship back on November 10. As RVC's setter, she finished third in the nation for NJCAA Division III with 10.24 assists per set. She set the RVC single season record for assists in a season with 1,577, shattering the record she set as a freshman last season. Stewart will leave RVC as the career leader in assists with 2,965, which is over 1,000 more assists than RVC's previous career leader, Kaitlin Slocum.
Her other honors this season include NJCAA Tournament MVP, Region IV all-tournament team, all-region, and first team all-conference.
Stewart was a two-year starter for the Golden Eagles after a standout high school career at Rockford Boylan. She will also leave RVC with both a third place finish and a first place finish at the NJCAA national tournament. RVC defeated Brookhaven to win its third volleyball national title in school history.
This is the fourth straight season Rock Valley College has had a volleyball player named an NJCAA All-American, following Kristen Kotch and Morgan Knoll (2011), Natalie Olsen (2010), and Kristy Bourquin and Natalie Olsen (2009). In total, the Golden Eagles have now had 19 volleyball All-Americans since 1996.
RVC's previous national titles in volleyball came in 1996 and 1997.
