Cranston won’t be the only Ram at the party either, as teammate Megan Purdue also received an invitation to join the All-West team.

It’s been an incredible year for the Rams' outside hitter, as Cranston was named the 2012 Mountain West Volleyball Player of the year, following a season where she averaged 3.62 kills and 4.28 points per set, ranking her second in the Mountain West.

112 fellow players from western states including California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico, Idaho, Texas and Wyoming have been named to eight All-Region teams, with 14 players selected per team.

The Fort St. John college athlete was also recently named a finalist for the NCAA women’s volleyball student-athlete Senior CLASS award, along with nine other players across the United States. Following a period of online public voting, which has closed, Cranston sat in second place, before NCAA media members and coaches provide their input in the final decision.

The polls have been closed to the public and the results will be announced close to mid-December.

Cranston and her fellow CSU Rams have recently completed their 2012 season, wrapping up the season with an impressive 21-8 record, en route to earning a fourth consecutive Mountain West title.

The team also earned its 18 straight trip to the NCAA tournament.

Cranston and Purdue will wait for the American Volleyball Coaches Association to announced their All-America selections, which will be announced December 12.
