Former Bishop’s School standout

Kendall Lord

was honored as the co-player of the year for the New England Small College Athletic Conference last week for her efforts on the

Tufts University volleyball team


Lord, who is now a junior setter for the Jumbos, led the league with 10.61 assists per set and shared the player of the year honors with Bowdoin’s Kristin Hanczor.

Lord also averaged 0.44 service aces per set (10th in NESCAC), 3.05 digs per set and 0.54 blocks per set (second on the team). She was the NESCAC Player of the Week on Oct. 17.

Tufts finished 9-1 in NESCAC to earn the No. 2 seed in the conference championship. After defeating Williams in five sets during the quarterfinals, the team was eliminated by Middlebury in the semifinals.

Lord and her teammates made it to the Division III NCAA Tournament before losing last weekend in the second round to Springfield College.
