STEPHENVILLE (December 4, 2014) — Hailey Roberts became just the second Tarleton State volleyball player to ever earn All-American honors Tuesday when she was listed as a third-team selection by Daktronics.

And she’s only a freshman. The best freshman, in fact, in the Lone Star Conference Player of the Year.

Roberts is one of just two LSC players selected to the Daktronics All-American team after being named LSC freshman of the year then to the Daktronics All-South Central Region squad.
