Valpo volleyball senior middle Miranda Strongman (Wolverine Lake, Mich./Walled Lake Central [LIU]) represented the Beacons on the MVC All-Tournament Team for her stellar work on both sides of the net in Valpo’s pair of tournament matches.
Strongman opened the tournament with nine kills on a team-best .444 hitting in the sweep of Murray State in the opening round on Sunday and also tied for match-high honors with four blocks. On Monday in second-round action against UIC, Strongman tied for a team best with seven kills and did not commit an attack error, hitting .467, and tied for a team high with three blocks as well.
For the tournament, Strongman hit at a .455 clip while averaging 2.67 kills and 1.17 blocks per set over the Beacons’ two tournament matches. Strongman is the 10th different Valpo player to earn an All-Tournament accolade this season, as three different Beacons earned a tournament honor in the three early-season tournaments which announced an All-Tournament Team.
