SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Macy Ubben was at her best during Missouri Valley Conference play, and the coaches of the league took notice.
Ubben, a 6-foot-2 outside hitter from Ackley, earned her first all-conference accolade when she was named as one of the Northern Iowa volleyball team's three first-team selections.
The AGWSR High School graduate and Panther junior ranks fourth on the team with 2.41 kills per set and 59 total blocks. She finished the season ranked third in the Missouri Valley, however, with 3.4 kills per set and was seventh in hitting percentage (.307).
Ubben had a team-high 18 kills in UNI's loss to Wichita State in the semifinals of the MVC Tournament Friday night, but the Panthers still gained an at-large berth into the NCAA tournament.
