November 19, 2013 · @MTAthletics

IRVING, Texas - Redshirt-sophomore Tyler Richardson was named to the All-Conference USA first team, with freshman Jale Hervey earning all-freshman team accolades, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

With a league-best 1.18 blocks per set and .420 hitting efficiency, Richardson earns All-C-USA first team honors. The Michigan native is 13th in the nation in hitting at .420, while her blocks per set total is also in the top 100 nationally. Richardson has continued her dominance on the block, as she averaged 1.23 blocks per set as a freshman.

Hervey was voted to the all-freshman list after contributing 3.06 kills per set in her first year in Murfreesboro. The Huntsville, Ala. product has been a force throughout the season for the Blue Raiders, with a career-best 20 kills coming vs. Southern Miss on Oct. 25.

Conference USA specialist awards will be announced Wednesday, the day prior to the beginning of the 2013 Conference USA Volleyball Championship at Alumni Memorial Gym. The first match on Thursday, between Southern Miss and UTEP, begins at noon. The Blue Raiders will face FIU at 5 p.m.
