Walsh Named All-Big 12

Nov. 27, 2017

FORT WORTH, Texas – Junior Anna Walsh was honored by the Big 12 Conference on Monday afternoon as the league announced their 2017 All-Big 12 Volleyball Postseason Awards.

A native of Grapevine, Texas, Walsh was the sole member of the TCU volleyball team to be honored and was named to the All-Big 12 Second Team for the first time in her career.

“Anna has carried a big load for our team this season and has put up some pretty big numbers for her position,” Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer said. “After playing on the rightside last season, she moved back to the middle and has been a dominant force in the Big 12. It's nice to see her hard work be rewarded by the coaches in our league.”

Walsh has led TCU all season long offensively and defensively with 268 kills, 2.82 kills per set and a .308 hitting clip. The junior has also posted a team-best 98 total blocks and 1.03 blocks per set overall this season. In conference action this season, Walsh was putting down a team-best 3.02 kills per set and posting 1.13 blocks per set. Walsh became the eighth player in program history to score a double-double with double-digit kills and double-digit blocks in the victory over Kansas State. Prior to the start of the 2017 season, Walsh was named to the Preseason All-Big 12 Team.

TCU wrapped-up the regular season with a sweep on the road of Oklahoma to finish with a 12-16 overall mark and 4-12 record in Big 12 action. The Horned Frogs earned an at-large bid to the 2017 National Invitational Volleyball Championship (NIVC) and will travel to Denton, Texas to face Wyoming on Thursday, Nov. 30 at 4 p.m., in the first round.
