GREENWOOD, Ind. – Gustavus volleyball player Kate Holtan (Sr., Rochester) has been selected to the 2021 CoSIDA Academic All-District 6 Volleyball Team, which was announced Thursday.

Holtan, a management major with a 3.78 GPA, played and started in 128 career matches in her four-plus seasons helping the Gusties achieve a 96-32 overall record (77-26 MIAC) including the 2018 MIAC playoff championship, 2021 MIAC regular season and playoff championships, and the 2018 NCAA region title. Holtan, who recently earned AVCA Third Team All-America, is also a three-time All-America honorable mention selection, four-time AVCA All-Central Region Team member, and a four-time MIAC All-Conference Team member. This season, Holtan was voted the MIAC Player of the Year. During her first year, Holtan was named the 2017 AVCA Central Region Freshman of the Year and MIAC Rookie of the Year.

Through 128 career matches, Holtan holds the Gustavus program record with 1,711 career kills and an average of 3.68 kills per set. She ranks fifth in program history with 1,289 career digs and is one of two players in program history with at least 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs. Her 478 kills this season ranked first in the MIAC and are the second most in program history.

This year’s District 6 Team, which includes student-athletes from institutions in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, has seven student-athletes, including two from the MIAC. Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot, where first-, second-, and third-team All-America honorees will be selected next month.
