Sophomore Madi Mosier earned first-team honors, while freshman Ary Crittleton, senior Haylee Gregory, junior Hayley Hansford, senior Paula Okrutna and sophomore Ashlen Schwartz earned honorable mention accolades. 



This is the second All-MIAA award for Mosier, who was the 2013 MIAA Freshman of the Year and earned third team honors. This season Mosier led the Gorillas with 3.48 kps, which ranked eighth in the MIAA. She also added 2.10 digs per set and led the team with 80 blocks on the season, 10 solo and 70 assisted.

Hansford and Okrutna are also two-time All-MIAA selections. Hansford earned third-team honors in 2013, while Okrutna was an honorable mention selection. As the Gorillas setter, Hansford averaged 9.87 assists per set, which ranked sixth in the conference. She led the team with 13 service aces and added 2.00 digs per set. She also contributed on the block with 43 total blocks on the year. She currently has 2,756 assists in her career, which ranks fifth in PSU program history.

Okrutna averaged 2.57 points per set in her final season, including 2.16 kps and 57 total blocks for 0.63 blocks per set.

Crittleton had a successful freshman season before an injury sidelined her for the final nine matches. She put down 2.59 kills per set and added 46 blocks, including 15 solo blocks and 31 assisted.

Gregory finished her senior season with 74 total blocks (13 solo, 61 assisted) for a team-leading 0.78 blocks per set. She also averaged 1.92 kps.

Schwartz led the Gorillas defensively in the libero position with 4.57 dps, which ranked seventh in the league. She finished the season with a .958 reception percentage, having committed only 27 reception errors in 649 attempts. She also recorded 12 service aces.

The Gorillas finished the 2014 season with a 10-20 record and a 7-15 record in MIAA play. The young team will return 11 players from this season, including six with regular starting experience
