Sophomore Cody Kessel, the reigning EIVA Newcomer of the Year, was among the handful of EIVA players who received votes for the Off the Block Preseason All-America Team. Kessel joined current senior Michael Dye on the All-EIVA First Team last spring.
Kessel led the EIVA with 4.0 kills and 4.6 points per set last season, and he ranked seventh nationally in kills, and first among all freshmen; no other freshmen were in the Top 15. Kessel recorded double-digit kills in 20 of 23 matches, including each of the last 15 matches. He recorded a career-best 31 in 3-2 victory over Juniata.
The full team can be found on the newly designed EIVA web site, which you can find here.
Princeton will open its season Jan. 29 at UC-Santa Barbara. Read more about the schedule here.
