LCA alumna and outside hitter for JBU Golden Eagles, Audrey Dearien (LCA class of 2012), continues to excel and accumulate awards for her outstanding play.

Most recently, Dearien was named to the AVCA-NAIA All-American honorable mention team. She is only the third in JBU's volleyball program history to earn this award. Dearien's coach, Ken Carver said of the junior, “Her teammates and I are truly blessed to be able to have Audrey as a part of our volleyball team and family. She is a special player who definitely is an impact-caliber player on many fronts.” She continues to impress as she set career highs this season in service aces (62), digs (370), kills per set and digs per set (3.10).
