IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa junior setter/right-side hitter Courtney Buzzerio has been named an honorable mention All-North Region team selection by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Tuesday morning.
Buzzerio, who was named first-team All-Big Ten last week, is only the fifth Hawkeye to earn All-Region honors in school history and first since Sara Meyermann in 2001.
The Chino Hills, California, native, led Iowa in kills (184) and aces (20), ranked second in assists (323), and third in digs (127) and total blocks (46). She posted a team-high eight double-doubles, including a string of four straight. Buzzerio recorded her third career triple-double (13 kills, 21 assists, 11 digs) against Indiana on Feb. 6., becoming the only individual in the Big Ten to record a triple-double and only one of 22 in the nation to do so this season.
Buzzerio, who played in every rotation, finished the season averaging 9.2 kills, 16.1 assists, and 6.3 digs in 20 matches.
