Fey and Kopp named to AVCA all-Central Region teams
Senior middle hitter Jessica Fey was named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association all-Central Region first team Wednesday. Senior rightside hitter Jessica Kopp earned honorable mention.
Fey, an honorable mention AVCA All-American last year, was named the MIAA player of the year this year. This is her third straight selection to the AVCA all-region first team. She's hitting .361 and averaging 3.31 kills a set to lead the team. She's second in the league in hitting and fourth in kills. Earlier this year she became the ninth Lady Blues to record 1,000 kills and 300 blocks in a career.
Kopp is hitting .254 and is 11th in the MIAA with 2.78 kills a set. She was a second team all-MIAA selection this year and this is her first all-region honor.
The Lady Blues will make their ninth straight trip to the NCAA tournament next Thursday when they play Nebraska-Kearney at 12 p.m. in St. Paul, Minn. Concordia-St. Paul is the host of the eight-team Central Region tournament.
