OMAHA, Neb. — Creighton’s Megan Ballenger has been named to the All-Tournament Team at the Shocker Volleyball Classic.
A middle blocker from Ankeny, Iowa, Ballenger led Creighton with 28 kills over the weekend while hitting .357. She added five blocks, four digs and four assists in two matches.
The sophomore had a career-high 16 kills in Friday’s match at Wichita State, hitting .500 in 26 swings. She followed that up 22 hours later with 12 kills and three blocks against No. 19 Iowa State.
