Columbus, Ohio – The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced its 20th Annual AVCA Division I-II Men’s All-American Teams. Ohio State setter Steven Kehoe and opposite Shawn Sangrey was named to the second team as part of the 20-man team. The awards will be presented at the NCAA Men’s Volleyball Championship Banquet on the campus of Stanford University on Wednesday, May 5, 2010.
Kehoe, a 6-4 setter for the Buckeyes, is a junior from North Bend, Ohio. A Sports Imports/AVCA Division I-II Men’s National Player of the Week winner, he ranks in the top-five nationally in assists (13.49 per game), while also sitting among the country’s finest in aces per game (.36). For his efforts, he earned Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) Player of the Year honors and garners his first nod as an AVCA All-American.
Sangrey, a 6-5 right side hitter for the Buckeyes, is a sophomore from Columbia, Pa. A First-Team All-MIVA selection, Sangrey propelled the Buckeyes to the MIVA regular season championship and ranked among the county’s best in both kills (4.77 per game) and aces per game (.37). Sangrey earns his first AVCA All-American distinction.
Ohio State (21-7), ranked 10th nationally and the top-seed in the MIVA hosts 15th-ranked and second seed Loyola-Chicago (20-5) at 7 p.m. Saturday in St. John Arena in the MIVA Tournament Championship match. The winner advances to the NCAA national semifinals, May 6 at Stanford.
