McGinnis, McCray Honored

19

January

  GAINESVILLE - Juniors Angie McGinnis and Amber McCray are featured in the February issue of Volleyball Magazine, which is on newstands beginning Friday.

  McGinnis was named a first-team All-American, while McCray was a second-team selection. McGinnis was also honored as the Asics/Volleyball Magazine Most Improved Player of the Year for the 2006 season. She joins former teammate Jane Collymore (2003) as the only Florida player to earn the Most Improved award. In 2006, McGinnis became the first setter in Gator history to be named a first-team All-American and the first to garner multiple seasons with an All-America honor.

  Despite playing with a partial tear in her left rotator cuff for most of the season, McCray became the first UF opposite hitter to earn both AVCA and Volleyball Magazine All-America honors since current assistant coach Jenny Manz did so in 1999. McCray joined Manz (1998, 1999) and Jenny Wood (1996) as the only opposite hitters in UF history to earn All-America honors.
