The Stanford women's volleyball team had four players recognized when the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced its All-America selections Wednesday, including rookie Hayley Hodson earning AVCA Freshman of the Year accolades.
Joining Hodson on the second team was redshirt sophomore Merete Lutz, while seniors Madi Bugg and Brittany Howard garnered third-team honors.
The selections bring Stanford's total AVCA All-America award count to 85 honors spread over 35 players. It marks the third straight season in which the Cardinal has produced at least four All-Americans.
Bugg receives her third career honor after being named to the first team last year and the second team in 2013. Lutz is a repeat second-team member, while Howard and Hodson are being recognized for the first time.
Hodson's stellar first season included being named AVCA Pacific North Region Freshman of the Year, to the AVCA All-Pacific North Region, Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, All-Pac-12 Conference, and to the All-Pac-12 Freshman Team.
