Gophers senior outside hitter Katherine Harms earned first-team All-America honors Tuesday from the American Volleyball Coaches Association. Junior middle blocker Tori Dixon was named second-team All-America, while junior outside hitter Ashley Wittman made the honorable mention list.

These are the first All-America titles for both Dixon and Harms, who were also All-Big Ten and All-Region team selections this season.

The Gophers ended their NCAA tournament run last weekend with an Elite Eight loss to No. 1 seed Penn State.
