Menlo College's Calicdan earns All-American honors

 

Menlo College senior outside hitter Courtney Calicdan added another major achievement to her long list of accolades when she received honorable mention on the 2014 Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball All-American Team on Monday.

A two-time California Pacific Conference Player of the Year and three-time first team all-conference selection, Calicdan helped lead the Oaks to three consecutive Cal Pac titles and is the first Menlo College volleyball player since Deborah Bekowies, in 2009, to earn a place on the All-American honorable mention list.

Calicdan's senior campaign was one for the books as the Honolulu, Hawaii native led the Cal Pac in kills per set (5.0), total kills (485) and was second in total service aces with 33.

Calicdan's stellar senior season also garnered her attention on the national scene, coming in at third in the nation in kills per game and 16th in total kills. Calicdan is the lone player from the Cal Pac to be named an All-American this season.

She finishes her four-year career as an Oak in second place on the Menlo all-time kills list (1,177), second in career digs (1,023) and fourth in career service aces (114). Her 485-kill senior season places her in second place behind only Brooke Richardson and her 499-kill season in 2001.
