LAS VEGAS – Former BYU women’s volleyball star Dylann Duncan Ceriani was inducted into the West Coast Conference Hall of Honor Saturday.

The most decorated female student-athlete in BYU history, Dylann rewrote the school and NCAA volleyball record books, while leading the Cougars to four-consecutive NCAA tournament appearances (1985, 1986, 1987, 1988). She set an NCAA career record of 2,188 kills and still holds five BYU career marks. Dylann was a two-time All-American (1987, 1988) and a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-American (1986, 1987, 1988). As a senior, she received the distinguished NCAA Top 6 Award and earned an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Following graduation from BYU in 1989 with a degree in electrical and computer engineering, Dylann played for the U.S. National Team and professionally in the U.S. and Switzerland. She has been inducted into the BYU Athletic Hall of Fame, CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame and the Utah Hall of Fame. In 2013, Dylann was one of just six former student-athletes to receive the prestigious NCAA Silver Anniversary Award.

Dylann is currently a principal engineer/director of product development at Symbient Product Development in Vista, California. She has been issued eight patents with two pending in biomechanical engineering and received a master of science in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1996.
