Ashley “AJ” Johnson (Jammers VBC/Moanalua, ’12) was named to the MEAC All-Conference honors.
**1st Team, Libero, All-MEAC**
|Here is AJ as a young Jammers 14’s. They took 5th Place at the 2008 PNQ Tournament in Spokane, Washington.||Here is AJ 4 years later. She is now a Freshman libero for the 2012 NC A&T Aggies!|
Ashley “AJ” Johnson (Jammers VBC/’Moanalua, ’12) ended her first season in the program with 461 digs, which were the most digs by any MEAC player this season. Her 461 digs puts her at fourth on the A&T all-time single season digs list, and she is just the fourth player to record 400 or more digs in a single season. Johnson averaged 3.91 digs in 118 sets played. She also tallied 47 assists and 18 service aces.
AJ has been highly effective as the Aggies chief defensive player in 2012. She had double-figure digs in 22 of the Aggies 32 matches, including a season-high 30 against N.C. Central on Sept. 28 at Moore Gymnasium. She had 20 or more digs in seven different matches, and she recorded double-figure digs in the Aggies final seven matches.
AJ reached 400 digs on Nov. 2, by collecting 14 in at loss at Florida A&M. She is the first A&T player to record 400 digs in a season since 2007, when Stacey Malone ended the year with 513. She is the first A&T player to earn first-team All-MEAC honors since current assistant coach Arlene Mitchell did it in 2006. She is the first player to be named All-MEAC since Avignon Williams was a second-team selection in 2007.
“We are really proud of AJ. She has done a great job all year for us and it’s nice that other coaches recognized her efforts,” said A&T coach Hal Clifton. “I think being a freshman starting libero is very difficult. She handled the pressure very well and was able to lead our defense and serve receive. She is so athletic and quick and has a very sound technical game that is only going to get better. Mentally, she has a high volleyball IQ and that helps her see things developing and then being able to put herself in the right place.”
