HILLSBORO, Ore. -- Lewis & Clark junior Kortney Meyer set new career-high totals in four main categories this season, and last Tuesday, she was selected to the All-Northwest Conference team. Meyer was picked All-NWC Honorable Mention.
Meyer set new single-season career highs with 255 kills, 20 assists, 200 digs and 27 aces. She ranked fifth in the NWC in total kills. With 20-plus kills in three matches this year, including back-to-back games to end the year last weekend, Meyer set a career high with 21 kills against Willamette on Nov. 3. She also had consecutive nights of 15 digs in the final weekend of the regular season, matching her career high from earlier in the year.
The Pioneers had numerous student-athletes change positions this year, including Meyer. The shift to a more attacking role boosted Meyer's kill numbers from 158 during her sophomore season. She also went from 54 digs in 2016 to 200 this year. Meyer accounted for a career-best 3.6 points per set including over 23 points in each of her final two matches of the year.
Off the court, Meyer is a Psychology major who became a Certified Peer Educator to serve as a student-athlete mentor.
Lewis & Clark has had a selection on the All-NWC teams every season since 2003.
