Tech's Johnson Tabbed First Team All-Big XII

Texas Tech's Kelly Johnson was voted to the All-Big XII First Team Sunday evening, announced by the league office. The award is the second post-season Big XII award of Johnson's career after being named Newcomer of the Year in 2001.

"I am very excited to receive this award," commented the Fort Worth, Texas, native late Sunday night. "Although this award is given to an individual, there is no way that I could have done it without being surrounded by a great coaching staff and wonderful teammates."

Johnson becomes the sixth Red Raider to be named to the All-Big XII First Team and the first since Melissa McGehee and Colleen Smith received the honor in 2000. The 5' 10" outside hitter continues to rack up honors in 2002 as she was named Big XII Player of the Week for her efforts the week of November 3rd, Verizon Academic All-American Third Team, Academic All-Big XII First Team, as well as to the Four Points Sheraton/Red Raider Classic Tournament Team.

"I am very happy for her," said Head Volleyball Coach Jeff Nelson. "She had an outstanding season this year, and I feel like she has really developed into one of the premier players in the Big XII Conference. She is definitely deserving of this honor."
