Jendryk Named AVCA All-America For Third Straight Year
May 1, 2017

CHICAGO - Jeff Jendryk (Wheaton, Ill./St. Francis) a junior on the Loyola University Chicago men’s volleyball team, has been named American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) First Team All-America it was announced today. Jendryk is the first player in program history to be a three-time All-American (first or second team only).

Jendryk had another impressive season, ranking fourth in the nation with a .431 (226-39-434) hitting percentage and seventh with 1.16 blocks per set, both figures that led the team. The 6-foot-10 middle blocker, who was a First Team All-Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) selection in 2017, had nine matches of 10 or more kills, three times totaling 12 stops.

An AVCA Second Team All-America selection in each of his first two seasons at Loyola, Jendryk was a two-time MIVA Defensive Player of the Week honoree this season and in a three-set sweep of Ball State on February 18 recorded a career-best 10 blocks. Jendryk is the first Loyola player to earn AVCA First Team All-America recognition since Thomas Jaeschke in 2015.

This latest honor adds to an already decorated career for Jendryk, who as a freshman in 2015 not only helped Loyola to a NCAA championship, but also earned AVCA Newcomer of the Year and Volleyball Magazine Freshman of the Year accolades, while claiming Most Outstanding Player of the NCAA Tournament recognition.
