Fort Wayne, Ind. – Indiana Tech’s Kelsey Cox (Flushing, MI/Grand Rapids) has been named to the 2012 Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball All-America Honorable Mention Team. Additionally, Cox and teammate Stacy Nagy (Temperance, MI/Bedford) have been recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as 2012 AVCA NAIA All-Region selections.
Both earned the honors after leading the Warrior volleyball team to a 25-12 record. Tech finished the regular season in a tie for second place in the standings at 9-2 and went deep in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) Tournament where they fell one win shy of making another trip to the NAIA National Tournament.
Kelsey Cox, who garnered a First Team All-WHAC selection, was also named First Team All-Region. The senior middle hitter established a new school single-season hitting percentage record in 2012, attacking at a .388 clip, which also ranked sixth in the NAIA this season. She posted a team-high 390 kills and led the squad with 104 total blocks.
Cox’s .376 career hitting percentage also shattered Tech’s previous career mark of .369 set by former Honorable Mention All-American Erika Stouder from 2008-10. Cox closed out her terrific career with 756 kills and 186 total blocks.
Stacy Nagy, also a First Team All-WHAC performer, was named to the Honorable Mention All-Region Team. The 6-1 sophomore middle was right behind Cox with 336 kills and a .244 hitting percentage. Nagy was also second to only Cox in total blocks with 65.
Through her first two seasons with the Warriors, Nagy has recorded 563 kills and 153 total blocks, and is on pace to be finish as one of the top players in Tech history in both categories.
