Wolfe And Bamiro Named All-Tourney At Arizona

Senior Jessica Wolfe and junior Maureen Bamiro were selected to the all-tournament team at this weekend's Wildcat Classic at the University of Arizona. It marks the second time this year Wolfe has been voted to an all-tourney squad, while it's the first honor of the season for Bamiro.

In the weekend's three matches, Wolfe had 47 kills, 21 digs and three aces, averaging a solid 4.27 kills per set. In BU's 3-1 win over Cal State Bakersfield on Friday afternoon, Wolfe posted 20 kills and hit .425. She then added 22 kills and a pair of aces on Saturday against Louisville.

Wolfe was also named all-tournament a week ago at Baylor.

Bamiro, a middle blocker, had 28 kills on the weekend while hitting a sparkling .368. She also led the team with four solo blocks. Bamiro had 12 kills while hitting .435 against CSUB and had nine kills and two solo blocks vs. Louisville.

Butler will conclude early-season tourney play this weekend at home, hosting the Butler Invitational Sept. 10-11 at Hinkle Fieldhouse. BU will play UNC-Wilmington and Army Friday, Sept. 10 and finish the weekend with Xavier Saturday evening.
