Becca Shane Named to the AVCA All-American Second Team!
- Jacki Barten and Jessica Walden Named All-American Honorable Mention
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-- Becca Shane (So., Detroit Lakes, Minn.) became the second player in program history to be named an All-American.  Shane was named to the AVCA All-American Second Team. Teammmates Jacki Barten (Sr. Melrose, Minn.) and Jessica Walden (Sr., Hawley, Minn.) were named to the All-American Honorable Mention Team.

Shane is one of only two players from the MIAC to be named to either the first, second or third team. The only other conference player was Beth Freeman of Carleton, who was named to the All-American Third Team.

Shane follows Jacki Barten (Sr., Melrose, Minn.) as the only Cobber players to ever be named to the AVCA All-American Team. Last season Barten was honored as a thrid team All-American. All three players were selected to the MIAC All-Conference Team and also the AVCA All-Region First Team. It is the first time in program history that Concordia has had more than one first team All-Region player and more than one player receive an All-American award.

The trio helped Concordia to a 24-4 record in 2004. That mark sets a school record for fewest losses highest winning percentage (.857) in a single season. The Cobbers won the MIAC tournament championship for the second consecutive season and advance to the NCAA tournament. Concordia also fell in the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinal for the second consecutive year. 

Shane had a terric sophomore season. She was named to the MIAC All-Conference Team for the first time in her career and was named the MIAC Hitter of the Week on October 25. She finished second in the MIAC in attack percentage (.332) and fourth in kills (3.86/game). She led the Cobbers in attack percentage and kills, and had team-high kill totals in 15 of the team's 24 matches. She had a season-high 26 kills, on two different occasions. 

Barten finished her career by being placed on the all-conference team four years and on the all-region team twice. She was the driving force behind the Cobber defense at the net. She set school records in total blocks (500), assisted blocks (364) and has a chance to break the record for solo blocks. She has over 1,300 kills in her career and has played in 116 matches over the course of her four years.

She was among the league leaders in attack percentage and kills in 2004. She finished the regular season with 279 kills, an attack percentage of .277, 119 blocks and 59 digs. 

The all-american award continues Walden's string of impressive postseason honors. Earlier in the month she was named the MIAC Most Valuable Player, and last week she was named to the prestigious CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team. 

She is the current school record holder in assists in a career (4,354), assists in a season (1,278) and single match assists (68). She has also been voted the MIAC Setter of the Week eight times during her career, which is an MIAC record for that honor. 

In 2004 she finished third in the league in assists per game (11.81). She finished the regular season with 1,103 assists and had a season-high 68 assists against Loras College on October 8.
