MONTREAT, NC - As the end of the fall semester approaches, the postseason honors for Montreat College volleyball standout Kendra Jonhson continue to roll in. 

Johnson was named to the 2016 Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball All-America Team as an Honorable Mention selection. This is her second All-American recognition after being named to the AVCA Honorable Mention team last week.

In addition, Johnson was also named All-State First Team Libero by the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association in the College Division. Johson was one of seven collegiate student-athletes in the state of North Carolina to gain first-team recognition.

The junior led the Appalachian Athletic Conference in both digs per set (6.5) and total digs (809) and those tallies were good enough for second and eighth, respectively, in the NAIA. In addition, Johnson set an AAC record and earned a spot in the NAIA all-time top-ten list with her 60 dig performance in a win over Reinhardt University on September 13th.
