Wuerstle Named First Team All-Centennial
LANCASTER, PA – Three members of the Johns Hopkins volleyball team were recognized by the Centennial Conference with postseason awards. Elizabeth Wuerstle was named First Team All-Centennial, while teammates Erica Johnston and Stephanie Yokoyama were tabbed as Honorable Mention All-Centennial.
The three selections are the most for Hopkins since 2012, when the Jays also had three All-Conference performers. JHU finished the season 12-11 and went 8-2 in conference matches to earn a share of the regular season title.
Wuerstle, a sophomore, earned the second postseason honor of her young career. Last season, she was named to the conference’s second team. The Kennett Square, PA native led the Lady Jays in kills/set (3.22) and service aces (40). Wuerstle also tallied 132 digs and 35 blocks on the season.
This is the first-career postseason honor for Yokoyama, who recently wrapped up a four-year career as a Blue Jay. The senior led Hopkins in digs (342) and digs/set (4.68), and was third on the squad in assists (70) and service aces (30).
Johnston also earned the first postseason honor of her career. The sophomore finished second on the team in kills (231) and kills/set (3.04). The Palo Alto, CA native’s 197 digs also ranked her second on the squad. Additionally, Johnston was Johns Hopkins' representative on the Centennial Conference’s All-Sportsmanship team.
