INDIANAPOLIS – South Dakota junior outside hitter Kendall Kritenbrink was named Summit League Volleyball Player of the Year and was one of three Coyotes to gain All-Summit League honors during the league’s annual volleyball banquet on Thursday night.

Kritenbrink is the first Coyote to earn the honor. She led the league with 521 kills this season, which is ninth most in league history. She also led the league and ranks fifth in the nation in points per set (5.41), and was second in the league and ranks ninth in the nation in kills per set (4.65).

Kritenbrink, Tori Kroll and Kelsey Biltoft all earned All-Summit League honors.  Only IUPUI (four) had more All-Summit League honorees than South Dakota.

Kroll, a senior setter, led the league in assists with 1,189 and was third in assists per set with 10.62.  She became USD’s all-time assist leader earlier this year and now has 4,552 for her career.  She also averaged 2.34 digs and 0.46 blocks per set this season.

Biltoft, a sophomore middle blocker, averaged 1.04 blocks per set this season, which ranks ninth in the league.  She also averaged 1.89 kills per set.

South Dakota takes on Western Illinois in the first round of the Summit League Tournament on Friday at 3:30 p.m.
