WASHINGTON – Junior middle blocker Dani White (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) of the Georgetown volleyball team has been named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team, as announced by the league on Wednesday. The postseason awards were chosen by a vote of the league’s head coaches.
“Dani being named to the Second Team All-BIG EAST is not only a testament to her talent, but to our entire team,” head coach Arlisa Williams said. “We are proud of her for her accomplishments and proud of all of our players for their passing, setting and defense that allowed Dani to have such success.”
