WINTHROP, Mass. – Junior outside hitter Mary Shelow (Miami, Fla.) has been tabbed to the 2017 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Women's Volleyball All-Conference team, it was announced by the conference office on Tuesday morning. Shelow earns Third Team honors for the second consecutive season as an Outside Hitter.
Junior libero Katharine Journeay (Hampton, N.H.) represented Emmanuel on the GNAC All-Sportsmanship team.
Shelow put together another solid all-around campaign for Emmanuel despite suffering a season-ending injury late in the season causing her to only appear in a career-low 23 matches on the year. The Miami, Fla. native wrapped the 2017 season with a total of 247 kills to average a team-best 3.29 kills per set which also ranked third in the GNAC. Shelow also was among the team leaders in several other categories, ranking third in total blocks and fifth in service aces. The junior also recorded 56 digs and two assists on the season. The two-time All-Conference selection led the team with 12 matches with 10+ kills including two matches with 20 kills.
Over her career, Shelow has appeared in 84 total matches and accumulated 712 kills, 235 digs and 124 total blocks over three seasons.
The Saints finished the 2017 campaign with an overall record of 6-22, posting a 4-8 record in GNAC play to just miss the GNAC postseason for the first time since the 1999 season. With no graduating seniors on the roster, the squad will look to build off of this season moving forward.
