OMAHA, Neb. -- Creighton Volleyball's Megan Bober has been named an honorable-mention All-American, the American Volleyball Coaches Association announced today. Bober is just the third player in Creighton history to attain AVCA honorable-mention All-American accolades, joining Kelly Goc (2007) and Jessica Houts (2008).

Bober, the lone Bluejay to earn first-team all-Missouri Valley Conference honors, averaged 10.26 assists, 1.95 digs, 1.48 kills and 0.92 blocks per set. She owned 10 double-doubles on the season, and her 114 blocks are the second-most nationally among setters.

Bober was also a first-team all-Central Region selection, an ESPN/CoSIDA Academic All-District VII Second Team pick, and named All-Tournament at non-conference events at both Marquette and Saint Louis. She also earned MVC Player of the Week recognition on October 4th.

Bober is one of two sophomore setters nationally to earn any form of All-America status, joining national assist leader Jordan Clampitt of Tulsa.

Creighton finished a historic season on Dec. 4 with a 21-12 record, earning the program's first NCAA Tournament bid and first NCAA Tournament victory. Creighton is coached by Kirsten Bernthal Booth, who owns 141 wins in eight seasons.
