Jakovljevic led the Trappers’ volleyball team to an eighth-place finish at the National Tournament in Casper in November. The sophomore was named a first-team NJCAA All-American and first-team All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association, which spans all two-year colleges in the nation. Jakovljevic will continue her volleyball career at Eastern Washington.
