Seyfarth named First-Team All-American
Palm Beach State College sophomore and volleyball setter Haley Seyfarth has been named as a NJCAA First Team All-American for her athletic skills. She is the first Panther volleyball player to earn the distinction.
As a freshman, Seyfarth helped lead the Panthers to a 25-11 record, second place finish in the Southern Conference and a Region VIII tournament berth. She was named a First Team All-Conference player as a freshman. She also excelled in the classroom and as a result was named to the FCSAA All-Academic Team.
During Seyfarth’s sophomore season, she helped lead the Panthers to a Southern Conference Championship for the first time in 11 years, a 22-6 record and another Region VIII tournament berth. She was named Region VIII player of the week on two occasions, was named the NJCAA National Player of the Week, and received FCSAA First Team All-State honors as well. Seyfarth is expected to make the FCSAA All-Academic Team for the second time and should receive the NJCAA Superior Academic Achievement Award.
“Haley embodies what a student athlete should be,” said John Scarpino, interim athletic director. “She excels on the court and in the classroom through hard work and determination. Congratulations to Haley and the Panther Volleyball team!”
All-America selections are made by the NJCAA DI Volleyball Committee. Seyfarth was one of 12 players named as a First Team All-American.
Haley is considering a major in accounting and is currently filtering through multiple full scholarship offers from top tier NCAA DI programs, as well as strong academic NCAA DII universities.
She is the youngest daughter of Mike and Beth Seyfarth and hails from Bentonville, Ark., where she graduated from Bentonville High School.
