LEXINGTON, KY – NM State senior Gwen Murphy has been named a 2015 American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Honorable Mention All-American. This marks the first year all Honorable Mention All-Americans were selected by the selection committee, as previously players who made All-Region were automatically honorable mention if they didn't make one of the three teams.

The WAC Player of the Year and WAC Tournament MVP, Murphy averaged 3.29 kills on .421 hitting, 0.83 blocks and 0.67 digs per set. A three-time WAC Player of the Week during the season, she was named AVCA National Player of the Week for Aug. 24-30, becoming the first Aggie ever to earn the honor. Murphy also broke the WAC record for hitting percentage in a match when she finished with 14 kills on 15 attempts and no errors for a .933 hitting percentage against Robert Morris. The previous record was .889.

The selections were made by the AVCA Division I All-America Committee: Chair: Sherry Dunbar, Indiana University; South Region: Karen Weatherington, UNC Charlotte; East Region: Alma Kovaci, Army; East Coast Region: Dennis Hohenshelt, Virginia; Midwest Region: Melissa Stokes, Missouri State; North Region: Cathy George, Michigan State; Northeast Region: Ryan Baker, Colgate; Pacific North Region: Shawn Garus, Boise State; Pacific South Region: Liz Kritza, Colorado; Southeast Region: Scott Swanson, South Carolina; Southwest Region: Jill Kramer, TCU.
