BERKELEY – Cal senior Adrienne Gehan was named to the 2013 Preseason All-Pac-12 Volleyball Team on Wednesday.
This is the first year the conference has released a preseason all-conference team, meaning Gehan is the first player in school history to earn such an honor.
Gehan is one of the top returning outside hitters in the Pac-12 after leading the Bears with 3.10 kills per set as a junior. She was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team in 2010, when she helped Cal advance to the NCAA title match.
Gehan has battled injuries in each of the past two seasons. A dislocated ankle derailed a promising sophomore season and she missed three matches and played sparingly in four others last year because of a knee injury. Still, she finished last season strongly, registering double-digits in kills in each of the final nine matches of the year. She also finished the season ranked third on the team with 2.35 digs per set.
The Bears open the 2013 season with the Cal Molten Classic at Haas Pavilion on Aug. 30-31. Cal earned an NCAA Tournament berth for the 11th straight season in 2012 and returns three starters and a libero from last year’s team.
The Bears open the 2013 season with the Cal Molten Classic on Aug. 30-31. Season-tickets, single-match tickets and group tickets can be purchased by calling (800) GO-BEARS, visiting CalBears.com or in person at the Athletic Ticket Office at Haas Pavilion.
