SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Three University of San Diego women's volleyball players have earned American Volleyball Coaches Association All-American Accolades, highlighted by senior middle hitter Chloe Ferrari's second-team distinction. Taking home All-Americn honorable mention accolades are junior opposite Alaysia Brown, and senior libero C'era Oliveira.

Ferrari, the 2013 WCC Player of the Year, came back strong in 2013 after suffering a season-ending injury in 2012 to tally a team-leading 337 kills with an impressive .444 hitting percentage, as well as 100 blocks and 86 digs. Ferrari was named the WCC Player of the month for both September and October, as she helped guide USD to a program-best 26-4 overall record on the season. Ferrari was also tabbed WCC Player of the Week three times this season, and she was selected to the All-Regional team in Lincoln, Neb., after helping lead USD into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Ferrari completes her Torero career with the best career hitting percentage in program history at .401, and her .444 hitting percentage in 2013 is a new single-season record. Ferrari also capped her impressive Torero career with 329 career blocks, placing her seventh all-time, and she also recorded 1,228 career kills, placing her 10th all-time in that category.

Brown, a 6-2 junior from Fresno, Calif., also had a great 2013 campaign, as she recorded the second most kills on the team with 322 (2.95 kps), while hitting for a .282 clip, and was third on the team in blocks with 61. Brown figured a huge role in the Toreros bolstering their best overall record in program history, especially in a 17-match winning streak, that saw USD not only claim the WCC championship, but advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. During this 17-match winning streak, Brown recorded the second most kills with 188, while hitting for a .292 clip, and had they third most amount of blocks with 42.



Oliveira, a 5-5 senior from Honolulu, Hawaii, capped her impressive Torero career with 520 digs (4.77 dps), which is the fourth most single-season digs in program history. Oliveira capped the regular-season with an impressive 34-dig performance in the WCC championship match on Nov. 23. Not only was the 34 digs a career-high, but it was the third most single-match digs in USD history, and for her efforts she was named WCC Player of the Week. For her career, Olivera has recorded 1,337 digs, which is the third most in program history.
