Volleyball: Wisnoskie and Rovira Receive All-Louisiana Recognition

Wisnoskie vs GS 10.20.18

Louisiana lands multiple representatives for the third consecutive season

LAFAYETTE Hali Wisnoskie and Hanna Rovira represented the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Volleyball program on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association's (LSWA) 2018 All-Louisiana Volleyball team.
 
Wisnoskie received first team honors for the second straight season, while Rovira was an honorable mention choice. It's the third straight season the Ragin' Cajuns have multiple honorees on the All-Louisiana Volleyball Team.
 
Both Wisonskie and Rovira picked up their second postseason award, adding to the All-Sun Belt Conference accolades received in November.
 
Wisnoskie surpassed the 300-kill mark a second straight season, netting 331 kills on a career-best 2.96 per set average during the 2018 campaign. She hit .200 or higher in 17 of her 21 double-digit kills performances and on four occasions posted 18 kills or more with a .350-plus hitting percentage.
 
Rovira produced a career-year to cap off her stay at Louisiana, surpassing both 200 kills and 100 digs for the first time in her collegiate career. She was a consistent producer on offense throughout the season, surpassing five kills in all but three of 30 matches contested.
 
Louisiana was one of five schools to have multiple players named to the All-Louisiana Volleyball team. The awards were voted on by the volleyball media relations members in the state based on school nominations.
 
Taylor Bannister (Louisiana State) was named Player of the Year, Kaylie McHugh (Tulane) was chosen Libero of the Year and Makala Heidelberg (Tulane) was voted the Freshman of the Year. Xavier head coach Pat Kendrick received Coach of the Year accolades.
