In advance, I posted the All-Region Teams, below. Don't know if this is a sure thing, but it appears that the names on these lists generally all get adopted for the AA awards...the only questions are who goes on First Team, etc.
- There were some commenters about Towson (e.g., well, of course we beat Towson...). Towson has a good number of All-Region selections, and Regional Coach of the Year.
- We played...and won...against several Regional POYs...LOL, yes, also lost to two, too.
- Pitt: Lund/East Coast Region
- WI: Rettke/North Region
- Cincy: Thompson/Northeast Region
- Plummer-less list? Yes, she's ineligible because of games she missed. Meanwhile, that left room for 5 of her teammates....only school I saw at a glance w/5...besides us? I probably haven't looked closely enough.
- Proof that WVB isn't all about Cali...States with Regional POYs...
CA: Zip KY: 2 NE: 1 (and not B1G) OH: 2 PA: 1 (and not B1G) UT: 1 TX: 1 WA: 1 WI: 1 (yes, B1G)

Congratulations to Kaitlyn for the 1st team nod, and also to Kendall and Gabby and Serena and Jonni for their awards. I know they would have preferred another type of award but to be recognized is still an accomplishment. Congrats Ladies and let's hope it is not the last awards or trophy's you receive.
There's more than a handful of HM that look like they deserved more, and Jonni at top of the list. But also, likes of Hames, Kubik, Aiko Jones, Van Buskirk...
From a distance, the list of great players with 'only' an honourable mention shows how lucky you Americans are to be able to regularly enjoy the incredibly high standard of NCAA Womens Volleyball. Very envious!
