Daemen College women’s volleyball player Courtney Scanlan, an Ellicottville Central School graduate, earned a spot on the All-East Coast Conference second-team.
Scanlan and teammate Meghan Ballou (Eden) were two of 16 ECC student-athletes who earned All-ECC accolades following a vote of the league’s eight head coaches.
Scanlan, a 6-foot-1 redshirt junior outside hitter who transferred after two years at Stony Brook, made an impact in her second season as a Wildcat, leading the team in service aces (34) and service aces per set (.34), while also ranking second on the team in total kills (289) and kills per set (2.92), third in total blocks (30) and fourth in digs (221). She finished the regular season ranked among the ECC leaders in kills (eighth), kills per set (ninth), service aces (14th), and service aces per set (16th).
Scanlan started in 23 of the squad’s 27 total matches, while appearing in all 27 games and playing 99 overall sets. She posted seven double-doubles this season, four more than total last year and registered double-figure kills in 14 contests this season. Scanlan notched 20 or more digs in three matches in 2017, and registered a career-best 25 in Daemen’s 3-1 loss to Clarion University. She nailed down a career-high 20 kills to lead the Daemen offense in a dramatic five-set loss to American International College.
