May and Cleeland Receive AVCA and NEWVA Accolades

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The awards continue to roll in for seniors Alex May and Barden Cleeland following announcements from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) and the New England Women’s Volleyball Association (NEWVA).

For the third time in her career, May received AVCA All-America Honorable Mention honors. She also earned her second AVCA All-New England selection. In addition, NEWVA voted May to the All-New England First Team for the second consecutive season.
