West Virginia’s Adrian Ell has been named to the All-Big 12 2022 volleyball preseason team. It is the Cincinnati native’s first selection to the preseason team, and follows her selection to the 2021 All-Conference squad.

“Adrian has worked hard to get to where she is today,” WVU head coach Reed Sunahara said. “She had a great season last year. We are expecting bigger and better things from her this season.”

Ell, entering her second season with the Mountaineers after transferring from Florida State, played in all 102 sets and finished the 2021-22 season ranked seventh in the Big 12 with 3.47 kills per set. Ell also ranked 10th in the Big 12 in service aces with .29 per set.

The Cincinnati, Ohio, native tallied 335 kills, with a total of 921 attacks on the season. She led the Mountaineers in kills in 16 matches. To highlight the season, Ell recorded a team and personal season-high 21 kills in a win over Oklahoma on Sept. 24.

Ell tallied 263 digs, with 12 matches being double-digits. Additionally, she tallied 11 double-doubles on the season and recorded a season-high 19 digs in a win over Oklahoma on Sept. 25.

Ell was also named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 2 First Team and was named AVCA All-Midwest Region following last season.

This marks the first time since 2017 that all nine schools have been represented on the preseason team.

The preseason team and awards are voted on by the league’s head coaches who are not permitted to vote for their own players.
