Arianna Vreeland, a Dimond High senior, received All-America honorable mention notice Wednesday from the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

She is the fifth Alaska girl since 2013 to make the team.

Vreeland is the libero for the Dimond Lynx, who last weekend captured the Cook Inlet Conference championship with a five-set victory over the South Wolverines. Vreeland had 29 digs in the match.

An honorable selection to the all-CIC team, Vreeland is one of 150 players nationwide to gain All-America notice. Of those, 78 received honorable mention notice; there was 24 players apiece on the first team, second team and third team.

Vreeland was one of five Alaska players to make the District 10 region team, making her eligible for All-America honors along with fellow all-district picks Larssen Anderson and Kadyn Osborne of Dimond and Kylie Hurd and Emma McMillan of South. The District 10 all-region team included players from Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and Washington.

This is the 15th year the ACVA has presented the Under Armour All-America team. According to the AVCA, a record 975 nominations were submitted this season through the AVCA and MaxPrep. Players must be high school seniors nominated by their high school coach, who must be a member of the AVCA.
