Wyoming middle blocker Jackie McBride was named to the All-Mountain West Volleyball Team for the fourth time in her illustrious career on Monday, announced by the league office.
McBride becomes the eighth student-athlete in Mountain West Conference history to become a four-time all-league honoree and just the second Cowgirl to be named All-Mountain West four times (Erin Kirby, 2011-14).
This season, the Aurora, Colo., native McBride, finished third in the league in blocks per set (1.26), fourth in hitting percentage (.371) and 10th in points per set (3.45), all of which led the Cowgirls. McBride also led UW in points with 148.5, despite missing the final two matches of the season and was second on the team with 103 kills and 2.40 kills per set.
For her career, McBride is fifth all time with 462 career blocks, while her .335 career hitting percentage is the third-best mark in program history. McBride’s spring 2021 selection becomes the 20th All-Mountain West honor under Head Coach Chad Callihan.
