University of Hawaii middle blocker Taylor Averill and opposite attacker Brook Sedore were named to the All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s first team on Thursday.
UH libero Kolby Kanetake, outside hitter Sinisa “Siki” Zarkovic and setter Jennings Franciskovic were selected to the second team.
Averill, a fifth-year senior from San Jose, was widely considered to be the league’s best overall player. But UC Irvine opposite Zack La Cavera was named the MPSF’s player of the year. Irvine won the league’s regular-season title and earned the No. 1 seed in the eight-team MPSF playoffs that begin on Saturday.
Three Hawaii prep products also were honored by the MPSF. Named to the first team were USC setter Micah Christenson (Kamehameha) and Pepperdine hitter Josh Taylor (Punahou). USC hitter Larry “Tui” Tuileta (Punahou) was named to the all-freshman team.
