AVCA All-Region Teams

INDIANAPOLIS - Junior outside hitter Jessica Wolfe was named Midwest All-Region by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). Wolfe, the Horizon League's leader in kills and points, was one of 14 players in the Midwest to receive the honor.

"I think this is a much deserved recognition for Jessie," head coach Sharon Clark said. "She is one of the best outside hitters in the country, and this recognition shows that. She does well in every category. She can play in the front row and back row and do so many things. She's a complete player and belongs on this list of incredibly talented players."

The Plainfield, Ind., native is a three-time All-Horizon League honoree, led the conference with 4.01 kills and 4.62 points per set. She also ranked among the national leaders, charting 47th in the nation in kills and 45th in points.

Wolfe was one of four Horizon League players to be named all-region. Two other league players garnered honorable mention recognition.

Butler volleyball finished the 2009 season with a 21-14 record, including a 9-0 mark at home. The Bulldogs will return all but one starter next season.
