Central’s Zempel on all-conference volleyball team

Volleyball | Nov. 2, 2012

PELLA—Central College’s Tori Zempel (La Porte City, Union Community HS) has been selected to the Iowa Conference volleyball squad.

A freshman libero, Zempel is one of three defensive players named to the team and the only Dutch honoree. She is just one of two freshmen on the squad.

Zempel ranked second in the league in digs, averaging 4.72 per set. She posted a season-best 42 digs against Webster (Mo.) and tallied 14 ace serves for the year.

Zempel helped the Dutch compiled a 9-20 record with a 2-5 conference mark and a berth in the six-team league tournament.

New in 2012, the conference coaches selected just one 15-player all-league team. Previously the coaches chose a first team and a second team.
