On Monday evening, Kansas volleyball coach Ray Bechard made a phone call to his junior middle blocker, Caroline Jarmoc, to tell her she had made school history.
Jarmoc learned from Bechard that she was named a second team All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association. She is the first All-American in KU volleyball history.
After the phone call with Bechard, Jarmoc had to make a call of her own.
“I Skyped my parents right away,” Jarmoc said. “I got a bit emotional because I’ve put so much work into this. It’s nice to have recognition in the end.”
