How the team was chosen

This is the 35th edition of the Star Tribune All-Metro Volleyball team, a yearly tradition that began in 1987.

To choose the team, we send out ballots to all metro coaches, who nominate players from their own teams as well as from opposing teams.

Twenty ballots were returned. We selected the All-Metro first, second and third teams based on nominations, personal observations and conversations with coaches.
