“This is a tremendous honor for both Talisa and Callie, and a fitting conclusion to their careers,” said associate head coach Ben Bodipo-Memba. “They worked extremely hard the entire season and it is nice to see that those efforts have paid off with these awards.”
Kellogg and Miller are two of 12 Atlantic Coast Conference players that make up the 14-person All-East Region team, and both are now eligible for AVCA All-America accolades. The All-Region honor is the first of Miller’s career, and it marks the third time that Kellogg has been tabbed to the squad.
Both players earned first-team All-ACC accolades earlier this season and finished their careers as two of the most decorated players to ever compete for Georgia Tech. Kellogg concluded her fourth year on the Flats ranked fourth in the record books with 1,736 career kills, while her 66 career solo blocks stands sixth all-time in school history. Miller finished her career ranked seventh in the school annals in both total blocks and block assists, while her .314 career hitting percentage was the fifth-best mark in school history.
The duo helped Tech to three-straight 20-win seasons from 2006-08 and at least 12 ACC victories in each of their four years on the Flats.
