Once again, Texas senior outside hitter Micaya White has been honored alongside the best volleyball players in the nation.

White was placed on the first team of the AVCA’s All-American team on Wednesday. This marks the fourth time in White’s collegiate career that she has been named an AVCA All-American. White was a first-team honoree in 2016, a second-team selection in 2018 and a third-team pick in 2017.

White joins Demetria Sance, Haley Eckerman and Chiaka Ogbogu as the only four-time All-Americans in UT’s history.

Averaging four kills per set, White led Texas’ offensive attack this season. White also hit .301 while contributing 2.39 digs per set.

White was joined on the AVCA’s All-American team by sophomore outside hitter Logan Eggleston, who earned a second-team designation. Eggleston hit .314 and averaged 3.54 kills per set this season. Her 52 aces were the most for a Longhorn since Mira Topic had 53 in 2003.

Texas went 23-4 in 2019. The Longhorns had their season ended by a surprising loss to Louisville in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
