Two MDC stars were named to NJCAA First Team All-American
Though its quest for a third consecutive national championship fell short, two Miami-Dade College women’s volleyball players were recognized for their stellar performances for the season.
Student-athletes Kimberlie Apolinario-Correa and Tiziana Baumrukova were both named to the NJCAA First Team All-American following the consolation prize at the NJCAA National tournament.
Apolinario-Correa, a middle blocker, averaged 2.15 kills per set, a hitting percentage of .409 and 0.68 blocks per set.
She also was named First Team All-American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Second Team All-American.
While her teammate, Baumrukova, was not only named to the NJCAA First Team All-American Team, but she also made the First Team All-American Volleyball Coaches Association. She finished the season with 10.82 assists per set, which ranked her third in the nation.
