Shippensburg University senior outside hitter Gabriella Johnson was named to the 2019 NCAA Atlantic Region Volleyball All-Tournament Team last weekend. The decision to add Johnson to the team came Saturday at the conclusion of regional championships.
In a five-set thriller against Millersville, Johnson finished with a career-high 25 kills and a .303 hitting percentage despite 66 attempts. She also led the Raiders with 29 digs, served two aces and had two blocks. The performance marked her 20th double-double of the season for kills and digs and the 50th of her Raider career.
Johnson was the only player selected from a school that did not win a game at the regional. It is a testament to her performance. Gannon, the No. 2 seed, won the 2019 Atlantic Region Championship with a straight-set win over No. 1 seed Wheeling.
