🌾 ONE BIG THING
A team so nice, we’re featuring them twice!
If you haven’t heard by now, Shocker volleyball concluded the 2023 season with its first national postseason title in program history. Izzi Strand was honored as the NIVC Tournament MVP while Gabi Maas and Morgan Stout were selected to the All-Tournament Team.
The victory against UTEP not only put a stamp on what was a very successful season but also marked the domination of the Shockers’ NIVC run with their fourth sweep of the tournament.
