RIVERSIDE, Calif. --- Capping an incredible entry into the MPSF and NCAA Division I-II play this season, Levi Cabral was named to the AVCA NCAA D I-II All-American first team on Thursday.
The honor puts Cabral in a class with the 10 best players in the country, as he becomes the first Lancer named to the team. Already having earned All-MPSF honors this season, Cabral was also a two-time NAIA All-American during his career. He is the first player ever to earn first team honors in both the NAIA and NCAA D I-II.
CBU’s senior outside hitter led the Lancers with 520 kills this season, becoming the program’s career leader in both kills and aces over the course of the 2013 campaign. Leading the Lancers to a 16-12 record and a No. 8 overall ranking, Cabral averaged 4.19 kills per set, 0.43 aces per set, 1.45 digs per set and 0.51 blocks per set. He was second in the conference in kills per game and total points per game (4.90) and his aces average was good for third best in the MPSF.
One of the all-time greats in Lancer history, Cabral finished his career with 1,999 kills, 189 service aces, 574 digs and 266 blocks. Along with the aforementioned career kills and aces records, Cabral also owns the top three single-match kill performances and is the only player in program history to go over 500 kills in a season twice.
