Eleni Tsaparakis Earns LEC Honors

Nov. 15, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Senior outside hitter Eleni Tsaparakis (Norwalk, CT/Norwalk HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's volleyball team has earned a post-season from the Little East Conference.

Tsaparakis has been named second team All-Conference as an outside hitter. She was the only UMass Dartmouth player honored.

Tsaparakis hit .272 this season, averaging 2.62 kills per game. She also averaged 1.67 digs and 0.31 service aces per game. She ranked eighth in the LEC in hitting percentage and 10th in kills.

"There's no question that Eleni is most deserving," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve DeRossi. "Her stats certainly show that she's deserving. What they don't show is how she's been an example for the rest of the team from the day she set foot on our campus. Her focus has been to become a better player, and to make her teammates better. Eleni was an outstanding captain, and her honor says something about her and something about program this year as well."

The Corsairs finished 23-10 this season, advancing to the first round of the LEC post-season tournament.
