Volleyball senior Dale named Point’s first-ever All-American

WEST POINT — The honors keep piling in for Point University senior middle blocker Tatiana Dale.

This week, Dale became the first Skyhawk in school history to be named a volleyball All-American.

“Tatiana Dale has absolutely raised the bar,” Point head volleyball coach Amanda Jones said. “She’s taken it to a new level, and her accolades are indicative of all the hard work she’s done her whole life.”

This past season, Dale led the conference with 393 kills, and she led the team with 136 blocks with a hitting percentage of .350. She also contributed 20 service aces and 144 digs.

In her two seasons at Point, the program either tied, or eclipsed the school’s win record.

“I feel really great about it,” Dale said. “I really wasn’t expecting it.”

In addition to being Point’s first volleyball All-American, Dale was previously named the program’s first conference player of the year, and two-time first team all-conference selection.

“Her legacy is unmatched,” Jones said. “I have no doubt her success in life will mirror her success on the court. I could not be more proud of what she’s done, and she will be missed greatly.”
