Redshirt sophomore Katie Myers earned First Team All-Big Ten honors on Wednesday, providing Maryland volleyball a silver lining on a forgettable year.

While the Terps as a team struggled, Myers was terrific. After battling injuries for her entire career prior to 2019, she was finally able to put together a full season to great success, establishing herself as one of the top players in the conference.

Myers placed top three in the Big Ten in aces/set (0.39), blocks/set (1.33) and hitting percentage (41.2%) — the only player to do so in the conference.

The middle blocker produced 156 blocks to lead Maryland — a 34 block increase from last season. She also contributed 273 kills on offense.

The Terps finished near the bottom of the Big Ten this season with a 5-15 conference record. But with Katie Myers’s vastly improved play and 2018 All-Big Ten member Erika Pritchard returning for her senior year, Maryland will look to have a bounce back season in 2020.
