COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina senior outside hitter Juliette Thévenin has been named an honorable mention All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association, the AVCA announced Wednesday.

Thévenin becomes just the second Gamecock in school history to earn AVCA All-America honors, joining Shonda Cole, who was an honorable mention All-American in 2006.

“Jules has worked hard to become one of the best players in the SEC and the country,” South Carolina head coach Scott Swanson said. “The All-American honor is well deserved. We are very proud of Juliette and so glad she decided to be a Gamecock!”

A first-team AVCA All-Southeast Region selection, Thévenin closed out her career in Garnet and Black with a stellar senior campaign, finishing the season with the second most kills (466) and second best kills per set average (4.57) in school history in the rally-scoring era. She wrapped up the year ranked first in the SEC and 11th nationally in kills per set and first in the league in points per set (4.91).

Thévenin, a native of Mont-sur-Marchinne, Belgium, leaves the program as one of the most decorated players in school history. She finished her career ranked in the top 10 in school history in six career categories, ranking third in kills (1,590), second in kills per set (4.07), second in attacks (4,076), ninth in digs (1,012), fourth in points (1,744.5) and third in points per set (4.46). She is just the second South Carolina player of record to record more than 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in a career.
