Hawaii senior middle Olivia Magill and junior opposite Nikki Taylor were named to the AVCA all-Pacific North Region volleyball team today.
It was the second honor for Magill, who ranks 12th nationally in blocks per set (1.49 bps), and has helped the Rainbow Wahine remain No. 1 in blocks (3.18 bps). It is the first for Taylor, ranked in the top 50 nationally in points (5th, 5.41 pps), kills (17th, 4.36 kps), aces (21st, 0.43 aps), points (42nd, 530.5) and total aces (45th, 46).
Magill and Taylor are now eligible for All-America honors which will be announced next week.
