A former Canyon Del Oro High School student is earning accolades for her outstanding athleticism on her collegiate volleyball team.

Martina Kneifel, a 2010 CDO graduate, is now a sophomore outside hitter for the Mount Holyoke College volleyball team in South Hadley, Mass. Kneifel has played impressively despite her team’s series of losses.

On Oct. 4, she delivered 10 kills and 11 digs for the Lyons. It was her third double-double of the year and the ninth of her career.

On Oct. 8, she recorded six kills and nine digs during a game against Smith College.

And on Oct. 9, she was named to the All-Tournament Team as a result of her outstanding performances during the 2011 Seven Sisters Championship at Wellesley College. Kneifel racked up 2.36 kills per set.
