NEW LONDON, Conn. – Coast Guard Academy freshman outside hitter Angelou Dunton has been named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-New England Region team as an honorable mention selection.

Dunton, who earlier this week was named to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-conference team, led the Bears with 284 kills and 47 aces and she was second with 208 digs on the season. She ranked fourth in the NEWMAC with 3.26 kills per set and was third in the conference with 0.54 aces per set.

Her best match of the season came in a 3-2 win over Clark, which earned a berth to the NCAA Tournament this season. She had a season-high 25 kills to go with 14 digs while hitting a season-best .389 in the win. 

She finished the season with seven double-doubles for the Bears.

Coast Guard, which made its 19th straight appearance in the NEWMAC tournament, finished the season 17-12 overall and 6-4 in conference play.
