MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - Wesleyan senior outside hitter Lisa Drennan (Ann Arbor, Mich.) has been selected by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) as a Second Team All-American. Drennan is the only player from a NESCAC or New England institution to be listed among AVCA's three All-America squads.
Drennan came away as the 2008 NESCAC Player of the Year for the second time in her career after earning the honor as a sophomore in 2006. Drennan led the NESCAC in kills per set for the third year in a row, averaging 4.70 as she recorded 484 for the season.

In addition to her prolific kill numbers, Drennan was also second among all players in hitting percentage (.315) and contributed 2.56 digs per set for the Cardinals. Drennan completed her career by receiving All-Conference recognition for the fourth year in a row as she garnered First Team accolades for the third-straight fall. Her selection to an AVCA All-America squad is the first such honor for a Wesleyan player in the team's 25-year history.
Drennan also recently received CoSIDA Academic All-America District I team honors.
