LEXINGTON, KY - Incoming freshman Megan York was named to the 2006-07 AVCA High School Senior All-American team. York, a Texas native, was one of thirty-six high school seniors to receive the award.

Megan York joins the Gaels from San Antonio, TX. She attended Ronald Reagan High School where she earned four letters in volleyball. She averages 1.3 aces, 4.5 kills and 3.5 digs per game. York led her squad to District and Regional Championships in 2005 and `06 and helped her team become State Semifinalists in `05. Prepvolleyball.com ranked York #63 in their top 100 prep volleyball athletes. York was named the Texas Division 4 Player of the Year. She was named All-District '04-'06. York was recruited by Duke, San Diego State, Tennessee, Miami and Texas State. She chose to become a Gael because of the outstanding volleyball program and academic reputation.

Each state in the country was given representation by a delegate high school coach, then put into one of 10 regions. Each state representative ranked the nominated players in his/her region, and sent those rankings to the chairperson of his/her region. Each region was represented on the AVCA High School Senior All-America Committee, who then chose the All-America Team based upon the rankings of the state representatives, extensive research conducted by the members of the committee, as well as dialogue between the committee members.
