Melrose native and Trinity College senior outside hitter Hannah Brickley was named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-American Division III Volleyball First Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

Carrying over a 4.0 grade point average as a biology major at Trinity, Brickley, one of three team captains, became eligible for the Academic All-American Team after being named to the Capitol One Academic All-District squad for the second consecutive season earlier this month.

Brickley led Trinity volleyball, coached by Jen Bowman (10th Season), to a 15-12 record and to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championship Tournament for the fifth consecutive season this fall. Brickley also joined senior tri-captain L Sarah Whitham (South Weymouth), sophomore RS Hunter Drews (Clifton Park, N.Y.), sophomore MH Katie Stueber (Darien, Conn.) on the NESCAC Fall All-Academic Team.

A four-year starter, Brickley led Trinity in kills with 355, attacks with 1,151, and digs with 372 and added 20 aces and 46 blocks (3rd on team) with a .220 hitting percentage (2nd on team) in 2013. She was named to the all-tournament teams in both the Brandeis Invitational and the Hall of Fame Invitational. Brickley is a three-time All-NESCAC honoree (1st Team in 2011 and 2013, 2nd Team in 2012), a 2011 American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-New England First Team selection, a 2011 New England Women's Volleyball Association (NEWVA) All-New England Third Team selection, a 2012 NEWVA Honorable Mention, and a 2013 AVCA All-New England Honorable Mention. Most recently, she was selected for and attended the NEWVA Senior Classic All-Star Game. Brickley set a College record for kills per set in a season with 4.20 in 2011, and ranks second all-time at Trinity in kills (1,257) and attacks (3,85), and fifth all time in digs (1,212) and hitting percentage (.216).

Her academic accolades are numerous as well, including NESCAC All-Academic recognition in 2011 and 2012, Capital One Academic All-District last fall, and Trinity's Junior Female Scholar Athlete of the Year (Board of Fellows) Award in the spring. She was also Trinity's representative on the NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team in 2010. Brickley, who also plays basketball for the Bantams, is the daughter of Cindy and George Brickley.
