(Crookston, Minn.)- Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich. announced its 2007 Ferris State Invitational All-Tournament Team today. Cassie Yates (Jr., Buffalo, MN) earned recognition on the team following a spectacular weekend at the setter position.

Yates played in all four matches and in all 16 games during the two day tournament. She tallied over 30 assists in all four games and was three assists shy of her career record against the University of Alaska-Anchorage when she assisted on 56 Golden Eagle kills.
