Clay libero Kallie Seimet honored by Mid-Am, BGSU

Last spring, Bowling Green State University 5-foot-8 libero Kallie Seimet was honored by the Mid-American Conference and the volleyball team for her award-winning four-year career playing for the Falcons.
        She is among 24 student-athletes who were presented the Medal of Excellence Award during the Honors Dinner Ceremony at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel as part of the MAC spring meetings.
        The Medal of Excellence is an award presented annually to one male and one female student-athlete from the graduating class of each of the 12 conference member institutions.
        "The Medal of Excellence Award is a reinforcement of the core values that we as a conference and each of our member institutions all possess with excellence in academics, athletics, leadership and service," said MAC Commissioner Jon A. Steinbrecher. "We congratulate all of our Medal of Excellence Award winners."
        To be honored with the Medal of Excellence Award, student-athletes had to participate on the varsity level in a conference sponsored sport and shown evidence of academic success with a minimum 3.5 accumulative grade-point average, exhibited athletics excellence, leadership and service.  
        At the team banquet held last spring, Seimet was presented multiple awards, being given the Excellence Award and the Hard Work Award.
        Seimet recorded a record breaking season for the Falcons in 2018, becoming BGSU's all-time leader in digs with 2,365. Additionally, Seimet was the first player in MAC history to be named back-to-back MAC Player of the Year and MAC Defensive Player of the Year.
        The MVP of the BGSU Invitational Tournament, Seimet earned a spot on the Duquesne All-Tournament Team while being named First Team All-MAC and Academic All-MAC.
        The team accomplished their second of back-to-back regular season MAC championships for just the second time in program history, with the Falcons doing the same in both 1991 and 1992. In addition, the team played host to the MAC Player of the Year, MAC Defensive Player of the Year, eight Academic All-MAC recipients for the second straight year and three members of the All-MAC First Team.
        Seimet’s high school accolades include leading Clay to second place finish in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference in 2014, received first team all-district and all-league honors that year and was named second team all-district and second team all-league as a junior. She also guided Premier Volleyball Club to a second place finish in the 2014 AAU Tournament.
        In the fall of 2019, the only remaining Bowling Green player from the Eastern Maumee Bay community will be 5-10 sophomore outside hitter Katelyn Meyer (Eastwood).
        Last year as a freshman, Meyer was named All-MAC first team, appearing in 29 matches and playing in 95 sets. Meyer averaged 2.81 kills per set to become the team’s leader in kills with 267 and recorded a season high of 16 kills versus Eastern Michigan, 14 kills and zero attacks errors for a .424 average in hitting efficiency versus Kent State, reached double-digit kills in 15 matches, registered a total of 15 service aces from the back line and put up 93 digs and 32 total blocks on the season.
        A four-year letter-winner at Eastwood for both the volleyball and track and field programs, Meyer also played club with the Premier Volleyball Academy. At Eastwood, she was a four-time all-conference honoree and earned back-to-back Northern Buckeye Conference and Ohio District 7 Player of the Year accolades, totaling 1,482 kills in her four-year career and helping the team post a 52-2 record over her final two seasons.
