The Idaho women's volleyball team has been chosen as an Honorable Mention Blocking Team of the Year by Collegiate Volleyball Update this week.

The honor is the second in a row for the Vandal women, which were tabbed as an Honorable Mention team last season.

The Vandal women protected the net better than anyone in the NCAA in 2009, as Idaho led the nation in blocks per set at 3.23. Individually, Idaho had two players, Anna McKinney and Debbie Pederson, ranked in the top 11 in the nation in blocks.

Collegiate Volleyball Update gave the Blocking Team of the Year nod to national champion Penn State, which was second in the NCAA behind Idaho in single-set blocks. CVU uses a formula that factors total opponent attempts, blocking errors and total blocks into an overall blocking efficiency rating.
