NEW HAVEN, Conn. — After earning First Team All-Ivy honors in her senior season with the Yale volleyball team, Cat Dailey has been recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as an Honorable Mention on the All-Northeast Region Team. Dailey, who earned the same distinction in 2008, led the Ivy League this season with 4.04 kills per set.

“Cat is a phenomenal volleyball player”, said Yale Head Coach Erin Appleman. “It’s great to see her recognized by the AVCA among such an accomplished group of student-athletes”.

Dailey, the unanimous 2008 Ivy League Player of the Year, was one of three unanimous selections to the All-Ivy First Team in 2009 after guiding the Bulldogs to a program-best 21-4 record. She was the only player in the Ancient Eight to rank in the top 10 in kills, hitting percentage and digs, swinging at a .266 clip with 3.55 digs and a league-best 4.04 kills per set. The Newport Beach, Calif. native also led the league in aces with 0.37 per frame.

A history major at Yale, Dailey earned 2009 Academic All-Ivy and ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District First Team honors in addition to her athletic achievements.
