Kaitlynn Pelger2

For the second straight season, the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association (AVCA) named K-State middle blocker Kaitlynn Pelger an honorable mention all-American.  The Olathe junior is one of only four players at her position to play all six rotations as she totalled 361 kills, 273 digs, and 91 blocks.  Pelger was also named first team all-Big 12 and the third K-State player to be an all-American in back-to-back seasons.  Nataly Korobkova was a third team AVCA all-American in 2007 and 2008, and Liz Wegner (Busch) earned honorable mention all-America from Volleyball Magazine in 2000 and 2001.

In the Big 12, the Texas outside hitter combo of Haley Eckerman and Bailey Webster made the AVCA all-America first team.  Kansas middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc and Iowa State libero Kristen Hahn are on the second team, while Iowa State setter Allison Landwehr and Oklahoma middle blocker Sallie McLaurin are on the third team.
