Becky Potter became the first Santa Clara volleyball player to earn All-American accolades and the second player in program history to earn All-Pacific Region honors

Santa Clara University women's volleyball standout Becky Potter made program history Wednesday morning as she was named AVCA Second Team All-America at a news conference in New Orleans, La. She becomes the first Bronco Volleyball player to earn All-American status after becoming only the second player in program history to earn All-Pacific Region honors last week.

Potter, who came to the Mission Campus from Buchanan H.S., is re-writing much of the record books in the Bronco Volleyball media guide. This year alone she set new single-season mark in total kills (571) and kills per game (5.34), as well as setting a new record for kills in a three-game match with her 27 against Portland.

For her career she currently ranks fifth in career kills at Santa Clara with 1,272 while her 741 career digs leaves her only 259 digs shy of becoming only the sixth player in program history to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career. Her career 4.28 kills per game average ranks second in program history with her .283 career hitting percentage ranking her fourth in program history.

Katie Wilkins, a junior from Lakeside, California, is a 6-4 outside hitter for Pepperdine. She averaged 4.61 kills and 2.42 digs per game in leading the Waves to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. Wilkins, a two-time AVCA All-American, was selected the West Coast Conference Player of the Year.
