Tylah Yeomans named to Spring Hill Suites All Tournament Team
Pensacola, Fl. — On Saturday, the Wheeling University volleyball team wrapped up their time at the Spring Hill Suites Invitational with a 3-0 win over Lees-McRae. On Saturday night, the tournament announced its All-Tournament team and a Wheeling University volleyball player was honored. Junior Tylah Yeomans was named to the Spring Hill Suites All Tournament Team after recording 63 kills and 41 digs through the team’s first four games.
Yeomans was the Cardinals’ offensive leader in each of the four contests, recording 12 or more wins in all four matchups. She started her weekend against host team University of West Florida and had her lowest kills total of the weekend with 12. She was the only Cardinal to post double-digit kills in the game and proved straight away that she would be a big part of the attack. . Day two was her biggest performance over the three days when she had 21 kills against No. 8 Central Missouri and followed that up with 15 kills against Spring Hill College. She ended her weekend with her second 15-kill effort of the event when she led the way to the team’s 3-0 win over Lees-McRae. Yeomans finished the weekend with 63 total kills and a .321 hit percentage, recording just seven fewer kills than she had all of last season.
Yeomans wasn’t resting on the defensive side of the ball as she helped her team get the ball over the net. She finished with more than five times the number of Digs she had last season, including three double-digit Dig efforts. Against West Florida in Game 1, Yeomans set a new career high when she recorded 10 Digs while collecting a solo block and five assists. She immediately broke that career high on day two when she recorded back-to-back 14 Dig efforts against Central Missouri and Spring Hill College. While the final day didn’t see her get as involved in the defensive department, she still added three more Digs to her tally along with two solo blocks and two block assists. The junior has played well on both sides of the ball and will look to continue to lead the way as the season progresses.
Yeomans and the rest of the Wheeling University volleyball team return to action on Friday, Sept. 2, when they open the University of Tampa Invitational Tournament against University Colorado Mesa with a warning at 3:30 p.m.
