JONESBORO, Ark. (12/4/18) – Arkansas State outside hitter Carlisa May has been named to her fourth straight Southwest All-Region honor from the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
May was named as an honorable mention selection for the second straight year as the AVCA announced its All-Region teams Tuesday morning.
A native of Lee’s Summit, Mo., May claimed her fourth All-Region honor in as many seasons after she was named to the Southwest All-Region squad in 2015 and earned Honorable Mention Southwest All-Region honors in 2016 and 2017. Her award this season gives Arkansas State a total of 14 All-Region honorees in school history, with ten of those coming the past five seasons.
The senior continued to perform at an exceptionally high-level in 2018 as she was named the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Year for a third consecutive season. She finished the 2018 campaign with 584 kills, the most in the 25-point rally scoring era in school history. Her season total ranks as the third most across all eras in A-State history, trailing only Cyndi Rhone total of 765 in 1991 and Beth Cochran’s mark of 603 in 1997.
May also became the Red Wolves’ all-time leader in career kills, finishing with a total of 1,880 and a career mark of 4.14 kills per set, which also ranks as the best in school history.
The Red Wolves finished the 2018 season with a 19-14 overall record and participated in the NIVC Tournament for a second consecutive season, which came on the heels of an impressive march in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament semifinals.
