Schuh, Neuberger Claim AVCA All-America Recognition
Dec. 14, 2011
Schuh is receiving the honor for a second-straight year while Neuberger is a first-time honoree. The duo helped lead Milwaukee to a 25-5 record and the Horizon League regular season and league tournament titles.
Schuh is just the second two-time Division I Volleyball All-American in school history, joining Leanne Felsing, who won honors in 2006 and 2007. Schuh won the Horizon League's Player of the Year award for the second-straight season this year and finished the season fifth in the league in both kills and blocks, making her the only player to rank in the top five of both categories.
She won league offensive player of the week honors four times while leading the Panthers in total kills. She tallied 20 double-figure kill efforts to go with 17 double-figure dig efforts and 12 double-doubles.
Neuberger is a first-time honoree as just a sophomore, the youngest-ever Panther to win All-America accolades. She was the league's newcomer of the year and the region's freshman of the year a season ago and then was an all-league honoree this year. She led the league in hitting percentage and stood second in blocks while also standing third on the team in kills.
Neuberger was the league's offensive player of the week on Oct. 31 and reached double figures in kills 10 times. She also hit better than .400 10 times and had seven or more blocks in a match four times.
