Canepa, Wolters earn honorable-mention laurels

As the Grand Valley State volleyball team gears up for an NCAA Elite Eight appearance in Louisville, Ky., two of its number were recognized with similar awards. Seniors Christina Canepa and Kaitlyn Wolters earned All-America Honorable Mentions from different organizations.

Canepa, a libero, was voted as a Daktronics, Inc. All-America Honorable Mention, while Wolters, a setter, garnered an American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Honorable Mention. Both players also received All-GLIAC First Team, Daktronics Midwest Region First Team and Midwest Region All-Tournament Team selections earlier in the season.

Wolters is the first Laker to receive All-America honors in back-to-back seasons since Rebeccah Rapin in 2009-10.
