Fairfield, Conn. – Senior Arden Fisher of the Robert Morris University volleyball team was named First Team All-Northeast Conference (NEC), the league announced at the annual NEC Tournament banquet, hosted by Sacred Heart University this evening.
In seven seasons at the helm, head coach Dale Starr has led seven Colonials to a total of 14 combined First and Second Team honors.
Fisher is a four-time All-NEC honoree, and garners First Team honors for the first time in her career this season after three consecutive years on the Second Team list. She is the third Colonial in program history to earn all-conference honors in all four years of her career (Katie Noble, First Team All-NEC in 1999, 2000, '01, '02; Amanda Graham, First Team All-NEC in 2007, '09, '10 and Second Team All-NEC in 2008). The senior from Oakmont, Pa., was named Molten/NEC Player of the Week once and Molten/NEC Defensive Player of the Week three times this season, including back-to-back weeks on Oct. 24 and Oct. 31.
Early this season, Fisher became the first volleyball player in RMU history to record 1,000-plus career kills (1,246) and 1,500-plus career digs (1,852). She ranks second all-time in individual career digs and fifth in career kills at Robert Morris. Her 598 digs this season rank second in the RMU individual single-season records. Fished racked up 30-plus digs in four matches this season.
