HANCEVILLE – Wallace State volleyball middle hitter Kianna Delaney has been named a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I honorable mention All-American, in the list released today by the national office.

Delaney, a Chattanooga, Tenn., native, led the Alabama Community College Conference (ACCC) this season in three categories, tallying 485 kills, 137 blocks and 3.03 kills per set, guiding Wallace State to its sixth straight ACCC regular season championship and fifth consecutive tournament title. Delaney, who added a .334 hitting percentage and 266 digs, was also named the conference’s Player of the Year for her regular season work and was the conference tournament MVP.

“Kianna had a great season for us. She was a leader statistically in many categories, but she was also a team leader on and off the court and a team captain. She basically led us to another championship,” said Wallace State coach Randy Daniel. “Above all, Kianna is a good person and has a chance to play Division I volleyball. She deserves all the accolades.”

Wallace State finished 30-17 in 2013, making its fifth consecutive national tournament appearance and 14th overall.

Delaney was a part of 53 wins, a pair of state championships and two national tournament appearances in two seasons, compiling 846 kills, 515 digs and 225 blocks during her impressive career with the Lions.

Wallace State volleyball has produced an honorable mention selection the last five seasons. Erica Baker earned the recognition twice (2012 and 2011), along with Lesley Bemis in 2011, Taulise Dunklin in 2010 and Cassie Daniels in 2009.
