Senior setter Micah Christenson has been named a finalist for the 2015 Lloy Ball Award, which he won in its inaugural year last season as the nation's top collegiate setter.
Christenson, a 2014 All-American and four-year starter who set for the U.S. National Team that won the FIVB World League gold medal last year, ended the 2015 regular season seventh in the nation with a 10.59 assists per set average and he led the MPSF with 0.43 aces per set (11th nationally). He also is 12th in the nation in digs at 2.27 per set. He helped the Trojans to a fourth place finish in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and a hosting spot in this Saturday's (April 25) MPSF Tournament quarterfinals against BYU.
Joining Christenson as Lloy Ball Award finalists are Loyola-Chicago's Peter Hutz and Pepperdine's Matt West.
The winner of the Lloy Ball Award will be announced Monday, April 27.
The voting committee for the Lloy Ball Award was comprised of more than 30 college men's volleyball head coaches and volleyball reporters from around the nation. The annual award is named after former U.S. Olympian and IPFW All-American setter Lloy Ball.
