PHILADELPHIA – Sophomore Courtney Quinn and junior Sydney Morton of the University of Pennsylvania women’s volleyball team each received honorable-mention All-Ivy recognition on Thursday, as announced by the league office.
Quinn, who was the only Quaker to start all 26 matches this season, led the Quakers in almost every offensive category. The Texas native paced the squad in total kills (260), kills per set (2.63), while also recording the highest hitting percentage (1.93) of any Quaker with more than 200 kills. She also finished second on the team in total digs (300) and digs per set (3.03). In addition to the season totals, Quinn also put together several career-bests, including 22 kills—the highest single-game total of any Penn player this season—at Cornell. She also picked up a career-high 28 digs at Dartmouth, while finishing the season with a team-best 11 double-doubles.
Morton, a team captain this season, steered the Penn offense as the squad’s setter. Appearing in all 26 matches, Morton was one of Penn’s most versatile players. In addition to dishing out 8.16 assists per set—a mark that ranked fifth in the Ivy League—she also piled up 98 kills and 209 digs. Morton was slotted just behind Quinn with 10 double-doubles, including a nine-kill (career high), 48-assist (career high), and 10-dig performance at Delaware on Sept. 20. Other notable efforts for Morton came at Brown, where she tied a career high with nine put-aways and at Columbia where she picked up a career-best 17 digs. Additionally, Morton recorded four or more kills in a game on 15 separate occasions.
