Volleyball Player Receives Honors

December 20, 2013

Ericka Johns of Egg Harbor Township was selected to the 1st Team All Garden State Athletic Conference and 3rd Team All Region for women’s volleyball this season.

Johns was a stand-out player for the Atlantic Cape Community College Buccaneers, whose record was 2-15. She had 9.62 digs per set, among the top in the nation.

She played the libero position, which is a defensive specialist and is not limited by rules of rotation. “Her role was to keep the ball alive, and she was recognized by the Region 19 coaches for her fearless dives and excellent passing,” said Mike Rennick, assistant director of athletics.

This was Johns’ second-year playing volleyball for the Bucs. She holds a 4.0 GPA and plans to pursue a career in nursing.
