WATERVILLE,ME.- The North Atlantic Conference announced on Friday afternoon that Freshman Porsche Johnson has been named the 2019 Rookie of the Year.
First-year Porsche Johnson (Dallas, Texas) is the 2019 North Atlantic Conference Women's Volleyball Rookie of the Year. Johnson was selected twice as the Rookie of the Week (9/16-9/22, 9/30-10/6) for her impressive performance.
She appeared in all six NAC matches (19 sets) for the Badgers, and contributed to the team both offensively and defensively. Johnson tallied 51.5 points (2.7 p/s), 30 kills (1.58 k/s), 16 service aces (0.84 sa/s), 15 digs (0.79 d/s), and eight total blocks (.42 b/s). Her three solo blocks topped the conference, and she is among the top-ten leaders in blocks-per-set, service aces, and service aces-per-set.
Johnson was also selected to the Second Team All-Conference and looks to be an impact player this upcoming weekend in the NAC semi-final match against SUNY Canton.
