Two Lady Knights Make It to the All-Northeast Region Team in Women’s Volleyball
St. Andrews University Knights has good reason to celebrate! Two members of their women’s volleyball team made it to the prestigious All-Northeast Region team. The two Lady Knights who made the cut are Angelica Arroyo, who is a junior outside hitter of the university’s women’s volleyball team, and Nora Darrhar, senior defensive player of the team.
Angelica Arroyo was a shoo-in for the regional team as she completed the season’s conference on a high note, finishing as the conference leader with an astounding 522 kills and 305 digs. From the time she began playing with the university team until she made it to the Northeast region team, she’s managed to make over 1,000 kills. Not bad for a junior outside hitter!
As for Nora Darrhar, she’s managed to rack-up 753 digs in her senior season which earned her the AAC Player of the Week title two times now, and National Defender of the week once. She completes her collegiate athletic career with the following accomplishments:
- 2,129 digs
- Most digs in a single season (from 2006 up to the present)
- 75 wins in the last 4 seasons, making her a player with the most career wins
