Dec. 12, 2012
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - San Diego State senior middle blocker Andrea Hannasch and junior setter Johnna Fouch have received honorable mention All-America honors from the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). It marks the second consecutive year that Hannasch has been selected and the first for Fouch after both were named to the AVCA All-West Region teams this season.
Hannasch finished the eason averaging 2.93 kills, 1.41 digs, 1.01 blocks and 3.67 points per set while hitting at a .301 clip. She ended her time at San Diego State second on the SDSU career list in block assists. She was a three-time all-Mountain West selection and was named the conference Player of the Week each of her four seasons as an Aztec.
Fouch was an all-conference selection for the second straight season as the Mountain West Setter of the Year. In 2012 she averaged 9.27 assists and 2.14 digs per set despite splitting time at her position over the first half of the campaign. Her stats in league play included 10.88 assists and 2.28 digs per set. Fouch recorded 11 double-doubles (assists-digs) this past season including seven in the Aztecs' final nine matches.
Hannasch and Fouch helped lead the Aztecs to their most successful season in recent history as SDSU compiled a record of 23-8 overall and claimed their first-ever Mountain West championship with a 13-3 record in conference play. SDSU also advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2001 season and finished with its best overall record since 1995.
