The Southeastern Conference announced the post-season volleyball award winners on Sunday.

Despite finishing third in the conference standings, Florida wasn’t represented in the awards. Florida did, however, have four players earn All-SEC honors thanks to a balanced offensive attack.

Paige Hammons, Taelor Kellum, and Rachael Kramer were all named to the All-SEC team while Thayer Hall earned All-Freshman team honors.

Hammons-

Hammons finished third on the team with 231 digs in the regular season and paced the Gators with 32 service aces. The sophomore from Louisville recorded double-digit kills in seven matches this season.

Kellum-

Kellum finished third in the SEC in blocks per set and sixth in hitting percentage. The senior was a three-time winner of the SEC Defensive Player of the Week and earned the SEC POW in early October.

Kramer-

The 6’8 Kramer finished the regular season ranked first in the conference in blocks per set and fifth in hitting percentage. This is the second straight season the junior earned All-SEC accolades. She also garnered All-Freshman honors in 2016.

Hall-

Hall became the first Gator to record 20 kills in her collegiate debut in the Mary Wise-era and posted double-digit kills in 16 of the 23 matches she competed in. The heralded recruit from Spartanburg, SC earned the SEC Freshman of the Week honor twice this season.

Florida will find out their NCAA fate Sunday night during the NCAA Selection Show. The show will air on ESPNU at 8:30 PM.
