The Hawaii duo of Emily Maglio and Ka’iwi Schucht today were named to the USAV College Beach Volleyball All-America team, one of eight pairs so honored.

Maglio-Schucht, playing mostly at Flight 1, were 35-6 on the season, helping the Rainbow Wahine to a third-place finish at the NCAA Championship earlier this month. They won 23 consecutive matches between March 18 and April 27, setting a program record, and were named first-team All-Big West as well as the Big West Pairs Team of the Year.

It is the second All-America beach award for Maglio, who also was honored in 2016 when playing with Katie Spieler. Maglio is the second Wahine to earn All-America honors in both beach and indoor volleyball, joining Nikki Taylor.

The SandBows now have nine individual beach All-Americans, tying USC for third-most all time.
