Quade named AVCA All-American Honorable Mention following senior season

Illinois volleyball senior Jacqueline Quade earned her second consecutive All-American accolade after being named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-American Honorable Mention.

The All-American nod not only concludes Quade’s career as an Illini but also adds to All-Big Ten Preseason and Big Ten/Pac 12 All-Tournament honoree titles she received this season and marks the outside hitter’s second All-American award. Quade also stamped her name into the Illini record books with the third-most career kills, 1,791, and fourth in points, 2,016, and attacks, 4,722.

The outside hitter and Fort Wayne, Indiana, native elevated the Illini to their third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and led the Big Ten with 4.21 kills per set and 586.5 total point this season, garnering her All-Big Ten First-Team honors.

Quade finished the 2019 season with the third-most digs for Illinois, 261, 51 blocks, 12 assists and 10 double-double performances.
