WACO, Texas - The Big 12 announced the 2013 volleyball postseason awards and all-conference teams Monday, including Baylor senior outside hitter Zoe Adom, who was named honorable mention. Adom earned a spot on the postseason all-conference team for the second time in her career after a first-team selection in 2012.
Adom, a senior from Euless, Texas, led Baylor (12-20, 4-12) this season with 349 kills while averaging 3.17 kills per set. She finished the season with a .194 hitting percentage and had 17 matches with at least 10 kills.
Her 349 kills were the highest single-season total of her career while also setting personal highs in service aces (19) and blocks (53).
Adom needed just 13 kills coming into her final match Saturday at No. 1-ranked Texas to reach 900 for her career, and she had 16 for good measure. She finished her career with 903 kills, a .181 hitting percentage, she tallied 263 digs and collected 160 total blocks in 107 matches played.
"Zoe is very deserving of the award. She battled shoulder and knee injuries her entire career and worked extremely hard to play," said Baylor head coach Jim Barnes. "She carried a big load this season after we lost players to injury and led with great character."
Earlier in the season, Adom was honored among 13 Big 12 players that earned First-Team Academic All-Big 12 honors three times in a career.
