Meg Guignon Garners AVCA All-America Honor

LEXINGTON, Ky. — The American Volleyball Coaches Association released its 2017 AVCA Division III All-America teams on Tuesday, and Washington and Lee junior outside hitter Meg Guignon (St. Louis, Mo./Visitation Academy) garnered honorable mention accolades for the first time in her career.

Guignon is the ninth player in program history to earn All-America laurels, and this marks the fifth straight season a General has been honored.

Guignon led the ODAC in kills (342) and was second in kills per set (3.17) this year. She was 10th in digs (383) and 15th in digs per set (3.55). Guignon had double-digit kills in 17 matches, and recorded a double-double in 11 contests.

In the ODAC Championship match against Randolph-Macon on November 4, Guignon registered 22 digs to push her career total to 1,012, becoming just the 14th player in program history to reach 1,000 career digs. She also has 957 kills in her three seasons, and with just 43 kills next year, she would become the sixth player in W&L history with at least 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs.

Earlier this season, Guignon received AVCA First Team All-South region recognition and was named First Team All-ODAC.

The Generals finished the 2017 campaign 24-10 overall, after falling in the ODAC Championship to Randolph-Macon, 3-2.
