NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Senior outside hitter Cat Dailey of the Yale volleyball team has been selected to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District First Team, as announced today by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The Newport Beach, Calif. native currently leads the Ivy League with 4.12 kills per set and ranks in the Ancient Eight top 10 in hitting percentage, digs and service aces.

Dailey, the 2008 Ivy League Player of the Year, has averaged 4.12 kills and 3.23 digs per set this season, guiding the Bulldogs to a 17-3 record. She is hitting .277 and has also contributed 19 services, 20 blocks and 15 assists. She earned Most Valuable Player honors at both the Yale Invitational and Seton Hall Invitational this season, and also claimed Ivy League Player of the Week and Top Performer distinctions for her performance at the Yale Invitational.

Nominees for the Academic All-District distinction must earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 and excel athletically as a starter or key reserve. Dailey, who holds a 3.41 grade point average as a History major, is the lone Ivy League representative on the First Team. All-District First Team members will appear on the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America ballot later this month.
