The Collegiate Volleyball Update (CVU.com) is pleased to announce its selection of California's Carli Lloyd as the 2010 CVU.com National Player of the Year.
A senior from Bonsall, Calif., Lloyd directed the Golden Bears to their best season in school history as they captured the Pac-10 title and advanced to the National Championship match.
Cal started the season with 15-straight victories and would go on to a 30-4 record, the most wins in school history.
On the attack, Cal had high marks in both hitting percentage and kills, as the Golden Bears hit .308 for the year — good for a No. 3 ranking in that category — and were sixth in kills per set with 14.63. Lloyd finished ranked eighth in assists per set with 11.83.
In other categories, Lloyd was equally as solid, averaging nearly a kill per set with 0.97 and just over a block at 1.08. She also added 2.52 digs per set. Those stats are all tops among the five CVU honorees this season.
Finally, the 5-11 setter was named to the Pac-10 All-Conference team, earned league Player of the Week honors, picked up a spot on the NCAA Division I All-Championship team and was named the CVU.com National Setter of the Year.
