Downstate Alum Caitlyn Floyd Named Third Team AVCA All-American

By Staff, 11/14/18, 4:45PM EST


Floyd has had another amazing year as the distributor of the Bombers' lethal attack. Tuesday's recognition is long overdue as she has been among the best setters in the nation for quite some time.
Floyd enters the weekend with 1,104 assists on the year, an impressive mark considering IC has appeared in just 28 matches thus far. Much like Stone, she is poised to or has already set several new career highs as a nightly stat-sheet stuffer. She currently has new career highs with 80 kills and 33 service aces, offensively, while she has 39.0 total blocks on seven solos and 32 block assists, defensively. She sits just seven digs behind last year's total, while her 1,104 are just 58 behind her 2017 mark. She has six double-doubles on the year, while she has posted on her ledger are 24 appearances with 30-plus assists, 13 appearances with 40-or-more helpers, and three outings in which she topped 50-plus assists. Her nightly consistency helped her earn All-Liberty League First Team honors for the second straight season, while she made the jump from an All-New York Region Honorable Mention to the First Team this year.
Like her sophomore teammate, Floyd also has numbers that put her among the nation's top echelon of setters. Her 10.78 assists per set average ranks 12th in all of Division III. That mark is third-best among setters still remaining in the National Championship discussion.
Floyd had a strong performance during the Regional Championships, registering 103 assists, nine kills, three service aces, as well as 12 digs, two solo blocks, and three block assists on the defensive end. She was named to the Regional Championship All-Tournament Team at the conclusion of the event.
