Lubbock, Texas - Texas Tech senior Lori Garber was named All-District today by the American Volleyball Coaches Association. The 6'3" middle blocker was selected to the District V team for the second consecutive season.
Garber was one of nine Big 12 players and one of four middle blockers to be honored by the AVCA. Selection was based on performance in all statistical categories including hitting, serving and digging. AVCA members looked at statistics against all opponents, district opponents and nationally-ranked opponents when choosing members of the all-district teams.
"We are very excited for Lori. She has had two outstanding years. It's a nice way to be honored and finish her career at Texas Tech," commented head coach Jeff Nelson, "She's one of the top middle blockers ever at Tech and is a great all-around player."
Garber played two seasons at Texas Tech after transferring from the University of Hawaii in 1998. She finished her career as the school's all-time leader with a .323 hitting percentage. Garber led the Lady Raiders with 111 blocks this season, including 20 solo blocks. Her average of 1.31 blocks per game was ranked seventh in the Big 12. She was second on the team with 270 kills and 28 service aces.
