DILLON, Mont. – The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced the 2023 NAIA All-America Teams today. Redshirt junior middle blocker Danyel Martin was named an Honorable Mention All-American.

Martin earned her spot on the list after she was previously named AVCA All-Region first team. Martin, a 6-2 junior middle blocker from McAllister, Mont., was selected after she proved to be an offensive powerhouse this season, totaling 258 kills for 2.26 kills per set with a .344 hitting percentage. After finishing 20th in the NAIA for hitting percentage, Martin broke the UMW season record with her impressive hitting percentage.

Not only an offensive powerhouse; she was excellent on defense for the Red and Black. Throughout her 114 sets played, Martin was a strong presence at the net. She totaled 113 blocks this season for 0.99 blocks per set and ranked at 21st in the NAIA for solo blocks with 32 on the season. She also became the UMW all-time career block leader with a total of 279 total and counting.

This year’s selection is her first career All-American nod.
