LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released its 2007 Division III All-America volleyball teams and Washington and Lee sophomore outside hitter Rachael Phillips (Tampa, Fla./Tampa Prep) earned Honorable Mention accolades.

A 2007 All-South Region pick and a First Team All-ODAC selection, Phillips led the team with 396 kills and was second with a .314 hitting percentage this fall. She also racked up 196 digs along with 48 blocks and three service aces on the season.
