ATLANTA - Talisa Kellogg and Callie Miller have been named to the 2008 American Volleyball Coaches Association 2008 All-America Honorable Mention Team, the AVCA announced Wednesday morning.

Kellogg and Miller are two of 12 Atlantic Coast Conference players that were named to an AVCA All-America team in 2008, and it marks the second-straight year that Georgia Tech had multiple All-America honorees.

The honor is the first of Miller's career, and Kellogg received the accolade for the second-straight season. Miller becomes the ninth Yellow Jacket to receive AVCA All-America honors, and Georgia Tech has had at least one player earn the distinction in each of the last six years.

Both players earned first-team All-ACC and AVCA All-East Region 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.
