Riley earns NCAC Player of the Year honors

Westlake’s KateLynn Riley closed out a tremendous college career playing volleyball at The College of Wooster, earning North Coast Athletic Conference’s Player of the Year honors.

Along with the player of the year honors, Riley earned a second-straight NCAC First Team selection.

Riley had a remarkable season, leading the conference in kills (443), points (539), and hitting percentage (.352), while tallying the second most blocks per set (1.05).

Her place in Fighting Scots’ history was cemented during the season, as she moved into second-place on the all-time kills list (1,519), and fifth in blocks (327). Her .352 hitting percentage was the second-highest single season mark ever, and her 34-kill match against Oberlin College (Oct. 17) was the highest by any NCAA Div. III player this season.

For the year, Wooster went 21-10, their fifth 20-win campaign this decade. Wooster entered the NCAC Tournament as the No. 3 seed, but dropped its semifinal match with No. 2 seed Hiram College on Friday night. Riley, who totaled nine kills in the loss, was named to the all-tournament team.
