Lexington, Ky. – The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released its Division II All-Region teams on Wednesday with Lynn University's Sonja Udovcic securing All-South Region Honorable Mention honors.
This is the first all-region accolade in Udovcic's career and just the third from the AVCA for the Fighting Knights in the past eight years.
The dynamic pin hitter led the Fighting Knights this season in kills (433), kills per set (3.97), total attacks (1,137), digs (398) and digs per set (3.65). She was second on the squad in hitting percentage (.257) and third in total blocks (52).
Her 3.97 kills per set was the second-highest mark in the Sunshine State Conference this season, behind only SSC Player of the Year Nicole Mattson, and ranked her 23rd in all of NCAA Division II. She also ranked 10th in the league in digs per set, among the highest of non-liberos, and was 19th in attack percentage.
Udovcic finished the 2018 season inside the top-10 on Lynn's individual-season record books for kills (6th), kills per set (6th) and attack attempts (7th). Her 433 kills this season are the most by a Fighting Knight since 2008.
Udovcic was named the SSC Offensive Player of the Week twice this season and was tabbed the AVCA National Player of Week on the year's last announcement – marking the first player in program history to garner the national award.
