LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Clarion University freshman and former Conneaut High School standout Cassidy Snider earned Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West Rookie of the Year honors, the league announced Thursday.
Snider, who helped lead Conneaut to a pair of District 10 championships in high school in 2019 and 2020, enjoyed a stellar first season for the Golden Eagles.
Snider led the conference with averages of 4.24 kills and 4.63 blocks per set in 2021. Those averages rank 10th and 15th, respectively, in NCAA Division II to date. Her 432 kills to date rank seventh nationally, and she is one of only two players in the nation to record 20 or more kills in two three-set matches this season.
She joins Gabrielle Olson (2014) and Lisa Flynn (1993) as the only players in Clarion history to take home Rookie of the Year honors.
