Weynand finished ninth in the league in total kills with 153. She averaged 2.83 kills per set over the season. She had four double-doubles this season and had double-digit kills in 11 matches and double-digit digs in eight games this season. Weynand now becomes the second Texas State player to receive All-SBC First Team honors, joining Amari Deardorff who received it in 2013.

Kirch is third in the Sun Belt in blocks per set with 1.26, and she posted the seventh-highest hitting percentage at .303. She had double-digit kills 12 times this season while also leading Texas State in blocks 20 times and service aces six times over this year.

Hoppe ranks as the second best setter in the conference. She is second in both total assist with 598 and assist per set with 9.97 during conference play. She also had 1,022 assist over the whole season, and is the first Bobcat to reach 1,000 assist since 2013.She had a team-high six double-doubles this season.

With three players being honored, it is the highest number of Bobcats selected to postseason conference teams since 2011. At that time, Texas State was a member of the Southland Conference.

With seven seniors ending their Texas State careers, they hope to end it on a high note.

“There is nothing I want more for these group of seniors than to receive that championship ring,” said Head Coach Karen Chisum.

Texas State now heads to Arlington as the three seed in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament. Games are over the weekend on Nov. 18-20.
