CROOKSTON, Minn. — Minnesota Crookston volleyball announced that Marshalltown Community College graduate and former Tiger volleyball player Bojana Stekovic has signed with the NCAA Division II Golden Eagles.

Stekovic, a 5-foot, 11-inch outside hitter originally from Gornji Milanovic, Serbia, played two seasons for the Tigers. She totaled 120 kills in 39 matches played, averaging 1.08 kills per set for her career.

In a pandemic-altered 2021 spring season, Stekovic led MCC with 40 kills and 50 digs, averaging 1.48 kills and 1.85 digs per set in the Tigers’ eight-match campaign. She had a season-high nine kills, which she achieved twice.

Stekovic totaled 80 kills, 54 digs and 31 blocks in her freshman season.

“We are very excited to add Bojana to our Golden Eagle family, she will add to our program both on the court and in the classroom,” said Minnesota Crookston head coach Sarah Morgan. “Bojana clicked well with us during the recruiting process and we can’t wait to have her join us.”

Stekovic was a first-team academic all-region selection in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and was twice named to MCC’s dean’s list. She is the second member of her family to play collegiate volleyball, as her sister Jovana is currently a member of the Division I Long Island University squad.
