Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight Of The Week – Volleyball Player Kendall Polan

Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight Of The Week  – Volleyball Player Kendall Polan

Kendall Polan has been one of the top volleyball players in the Ivy League since the first day she stepped on the court at Yale. As a freshman in 2010 she was named the league's rookie of the year, and she has been selected as the league's player of the year in each of the last two years. This fall, she has a chance to become the first volleyball player in league history to win three player of the year awards. Polan, the 2013 Yale volleyball captain, is featured in the first Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.

During her career, Polan has helped lead the Bulldogs to a remarkable 38-4 (.905) record in league matches, three league titles and a pair of appearances in the NCAA Tournament. She earned AVCA honorable mention All-America recognition as both a junior and sophomore, is a three-time first team All-Ivy selection and begins her senior season with 2,416 career assists, the eighth most in school history.

Last fall, she ranked in the top-10 in the league in assists (fifth) and digs (ninth). In the NCAA Tournament match against Bowling Green, she produced 34 assists and 13 digs. She led the team in assists and was third in digs and kills. As a sophomore, Polan was named the most valuable player of the Yale Invitational, and in her freshman year was selected as the league's rookie of the week five times.

Polan, a political science major at Yale, is a native of Cardiff, Calif., and played for La Costa Canyon High School, the No. 1 ranked team in the nation in 2008.

Polan and her teammates open the2013 season by hosting the Yale Invitational this weekend at the John J. Lee Amphitheater. The Bulldogs face SEC power Missouri on Friday night at 7 p.m. and then meet Colgate and Seton Hall on Saturday.
