PHILADELPHIA – The Temple University women’s volleyball team had four student-athletes named to the 2022 Academic All-District Women’s Volleyball Team, as released by the College Sports Communicators Tuesday afternoon.
Taylor Davenport, Nikki Shimao, Patrycja Zielinska, and Magdalena Rogalska were all named to the team based on their combined performances both on the field and in the classroom.

In 2022, Davenport is third in the ACC with 435 kills and has averaged 3.66 kills/set, good for fifth in the conference. This season, Davenport has recorded 20 or more kills in eight matches.

Zielinska is sixth in the AAC with 739 assists and seventh in the AAC with 7.60 assists/set. On eight occasions this season, Zielinska has topped the 40-plus assists mark, including a career-high 63 versus SMU on Oct. 21. From the service line, the sophomore is the team leader and seventh in the conference with 29 service aces.

Shimao has aided the Cherry and White defense with 258 digs this season, the third highest on the team. Earlier this season, Shimao recorded a season-high 19 digs on Oct. 23 versus Memphis.

Rogalska has been a vital reserve player for the Owls this season and found herself in the starting lineup on multiple occasions. In 2022, Rogalska has recorded 40 or more assists on three occasions, including setting a career-high 58 assists versus East Carolina on Oct. 5.

To be considered for the award, student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.50 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scale at their current institution. The nominees must have also participated in 50 percent of the team’s games at their listed position.


The six Academic All-District honorees will now advance to the CSC Academic All-America ballot where first, second, and third-team Academic All-America honors will be announced in December. The CSC Academic All-America program recognizes soccer honorees in four divisions; NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and the NAIA.
