Former Shoreline Volleyball Standout Taylor Alexander Named as an NAIA All American

KANSAS CITY, Mo. College of Idaho setter Marija Djonovic was named today the Lady Yotes third first-team All-American in program history, as the AVCA-NAIA All-America teams were announced.
The Junior, from Podorica, Montenegro, joins Whitney Brigham (2011) and Kylie Porter (2015) as first-team picks.
Also honored was opposite hitter Taylor Alexander, who was named to the second-team, just the sixth second-team pick for a C of I player.
Djonovic had a record-setting season for the Lady Yotes, helping the team to a 28-7 record and a trip to the NAIA national quarterfinals. She established a new 25-point rally scoring assists (1,484) and assists-per-set (11.59) record – leading the NAIA in assists per set.  She finished with 312 digs, recording 19 double-doubles on the year – including a double-double in each match at the NAIA Championships.
Alexander, a Junior from Ontario, Ore., closed the season with 13-straight matches with 10-or-more kills. She finished with 345 kills (2.97 per set), 93 blocks (0.80 per set) and 36 aces.

Taylor played for Shoreline during the 2015 & 2016 seasons. Taylor was an All-NWAC selection in 2015 and 2016; earned NWAC Northern Division Player of the Year honors in 2016 after averaging 3.66 kills and 2.30 digs per set, adding 0.62 aces per set. Congratulations Taylor, PHINS UP!
