Cypress Woods High School senior Chloe Collins was recently named to the 2012-2013 Under Armour First Team All-America, the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).
Collins, a 5-foot-7 setter who signed with the University of Texas, is one of 24 athletes nationwide to be named to the first team. These student athletes have been invited to the Under Armour All-America Volleyball Match and Skills Competition, to be held at the KFC YUM! Center in Louisville, Ky., in conjunction with the 2012 AVCA Annual Convention.
Collins’ Cypress Woods teammate, senior libero/defensive specialist Victoria Arenas, was one of 52 athletes in the nation to be named to the Under Armour Honorable Mention All-America team. Arenas has signed to play for Texas A&M University next season.
Requirements for nomination were that the student-athlete be in her senior year of high school, that she be nominated by her high school coach, that her coach be a member of the AVCA and that her individual season statistics versus all opponents for the entire season be entered into MaxPreps, a free service that aggregates and distributes data on high school sports.
“I am deeply humbled and honored watching these girls grow and living their dreams. It’s been a fun ride that brings joy to my heart,” says Cypress Woods head volleyball coach Ashley Ahlfinger. “Their journey doesn’t end here; it is just the beginning, and I look forward to following their volleyball careers.”
