On Tuesday morning, the Tachikara-NAIA Volleyball All-American Team was announced and Doane placed a player on the list for the first time since 2012. Receiving Second Team All-American honors was Kaitlin Bradley (SR/Crete, Neb.). The local product played all six rotations for the Tigers in helping them advance to the NAIA National Championship in Sioux City, Iowa.

Transferring back home from Fort Hays State, Bradley put up two stellar seasons and stepped up as the go-to player this year. In 115 sets, she averaged 3.43 kills per set with 395 kills while hitting .241 from her outside attacker position. She posted 3.06 digs per set while adding 35 blocks and 29 ace serves.

In her two years, Bradley averaged 3.06 kills per set with 701 kills. She also had 650 digs and 54 ace serves during her time at Doane.

Doane went 25-10 this season, placing fourth in the Great Plains Athletics Conference (GPAC), and advancing to the NAIA National Championship for the first time since 2012. The Tigers went 2-1 in pool play at the championship and advanced to bracket play for the first time in school history. Doane’s season came to an end in the First Round of the championship bracket as they lost to the 2015 NAIA National Champions, Columbia (Mo.).
