PHILADELPHIA – Sarah Miller of the University of the Sciences women's volleyball team officially cemented her place as the NCAA Division II leader in service aces per set for the 2017 season after the campaign officially came to an end over the weekend and final statistics were released on Monday.
Miller's 0.72 service aces per set narrowly edged out the .71 per set registered by A'Rmaria Wright of Virginia Union. Sydney Tucker (Bowie State), Gorana Bogdanovic (Johnson C. Smith) and Karis Patterson (Chowan) rounded out the top-five at .67, .65 and .60 service aces per set, respectively.
Notably, the number also moved the sophomore into the top-five into fifth in the program's single-season annals.
Miller began the year in impressive fashion with a seven-service ace performance for a new career-high in a season-opening sweep of Cheyney. Despite missing four matches shortly after, that set the stage for a campaign in which she would register multiple service aces in 11 of USciences' 19 matches, including three matches with at least five and seven matches with at least three.
University of the Sciences finished its 2017 season at 6-17 overall and 4-15 in the CACC.
