Clay libero Kallie Seimet ranked in BGSU’s top 20

        For the past week, Bowling Green State University asked its fans to vote for their favorite student-athletes of the past 20 years.
        Throughout the month of September, the athletic department will reveal one selection at a time each weekday over a five-week stretch. BGSU highlighted fan’s No. 20 choice for the top student-athlete of the past 20 years, volleyball player Kallie Seimet (Clay), who played from 2015-18.
        A record-setting libero and an enthusiastic leader, no one in volleyball had an infectious smile quite like the 5-foot-8 Seimet.
        Seimet became BGSU's all-time leader in digs with 2,365 in 2018, as she went on to become the first player in Mid-American Conference history to be named back-to-back MAC Player of the Year and MAC Defensive Player of the Year.
        This came a year after becoming the first libero in league history to win MAC Player of the Year in 2017, during which she set multiple BGSU program records, including most digs in a match (45), most digs in a season (790), best digs per set average (6.81), and most MAC Player of the Week awards by a single player in a single season (seven). Her digs per set average of 6.81 was tops in the nation, with her 790 total digs being good for second.
        Seimet also led BGSU in digs during her freshman campaign in 2015, recording 491 overall on the season, with an average of 4.38 digs per set.
        She was also named to the Academic All-MAC Team in 2017 and 2018. During the offseason as a youth, she played for Premier Volleyball Academy.
        At Clay, she led the Eagles to a second place finish in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference in 2014. She received first team all-district and all-league honors in 2014, was named second team all-district and second team all-league as a junior and guided Premier Volleyball Club to a second place finish in the 2014 AAU Tournament. She is the daughter of Kurt and Kathy Seimet.
