Vorherr Earns AVCA All-America Honorable Mention
Dec. 12, 2012
CINCINNATI - Xavier volleyball libero Stephanie Vorherr was named AVCA All-America Honorable Mention on Wednesday. The Cincinnati native (Mother of Mercy HS) also won the award in 2010, making her the only Musketeer to earn the accolade twice.
Vorherr wrapped up her illustrious career at Xavier as both the school and Atlantic 10 record holder for career digs with 2,152. She holds four of XU's top five single-season dig totals - 603 in 2010 (1st), 558 in 2012 (2nd), 514 in 2009 (3rd) and 477 in 2011 (5th) - and nine of the top 15 single match records, including a program record 46 set against Ole Miss this season.
In addition to being named AVCA All-America Honorable Mention twice in her career, Vorherr was a three-time A-10 Libero of the Year and three-time A-10 All-Conference Second team honoree. She also earned A-10 All-Rookie Team accolades in 2009.
Vorherr earned AVCA All-Region Honorable Mention honors this season and was placed on the All-America Honorable Mention team by a unanimous vote by the All-America selection committee.
Xavier has had a player earn AVCA All-America Honorable Mention four times in program history, including each of the last three seasons. Jill Quayle was the first Musketeer to be given the honor in 2007. Vorherr won the award in 2010 and 2012 and current-junior Sarah Brown earned a nod in 2011.
