Habeck second team all-Metro

Katie Habeck
All-Metro Second Team

Tiger senior Katie Habeck earned a spot on the Minneapolis StarTribune's all-Metro volleyball second team announced Tuesday, November 9.
The versatile Habeck, a four-year regular for coach Mike Woody's team, had an outstanding senior season, finishing with team-highs in kills (404), digs(349) and service aces (28). She also ranked second in blocks (52) and serve receptions (434).
"Katie along with Kirstee Rotty and Danielle Dombeck have been players that I have been able to build a team around," coach Mike Woody said. "She has carried herself with dignity and poise through the high of a section championship and the low of a 2-5 conference record her senior season.
"This year she played every position except setter and libero. Her ability to transition from a middle hitter to our number one outside hitter, passer and defender was seamless. Leading the team in both kills and digs says a lot about what she does on the floor."
Though her high school career has ended, volleyball is very much in Habeck's future. She has committed to play next year for Concordia University-St.Paul, the top-ranked NCAA Division II team in the nation.
