Junior middle blocker Jayla Wesley (1) and sophomore outside hitter Kalina Smith

Two student athletes on the Central Michigan volleyball team earned All-MAC honors following the 2017-2018 season, despite a 7-21 overall record.  

Kalina Smith

Sophomore Kalina Smith was named to the All-MAC second team. Smith averaged 3.18 kills per set, good for seventh in the MAC.  On Oct. 19 she tallied a season-high 21 kills against Akron.  Smith led the Chippewas with 328 kills on the season.  

Savannah Thompson

The future looks bright for Savannah Thompson, who was selected to the All-MAC Freshmen team. She was first on the team with 21 service aces and her 259 kills tailed only Smith.  She recorded season highs in kills with 15 on Oct. 6 against Northern Illinois and digs with 23 on Oct. 27 against Kent State.  

The Chippewas finished last in the MAC West division in the 2017-2018 division finishing 4-12 in the conference and 7-21 overall.

CMU finished fourth in the conference in assists but was placed within the bottom two teams in terms of hitting percentage, blocks, and service aces.
