            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The top hitter on the Plymouth State University women's volleyball team was recognized Thursday with selection to the 2015 All-Little East Conference Team, as voted by the LEC's eight head coaches.

            Junior Dani Tabor (Olympia, Wash./Capital) was named to the All-LEC Second Team as an outside hitter for the Panthers. Tabor helped lead the Panthers to 22 victories, the most in a season for PSU since 2011.

            A 5'11" junior, Tabor led the Panthers with 285 kills and 3.43 kills per set with an impressive .338 hitting percentage. She led the Little East in hitting percentage and ranked third in kills per set. Despite missing five matches due to injury, Tabor reached double figures in kills in in 16 of her 23 matches, including last six outings, and was a two-time LEC Offensive Player of the Week. She had a season-high 22 kills in a four-set victory over Salve Regina in September.

            The Panthers completed the season with a 22-7 overall record, and tied for third place in the LEC with a 4-3 mark. Seeded third, PSU was upset in LEC Tournament quarterfinals by Rhode Island College, 3-2.
