SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State junior rightside hitter was named second team all-Big Sky Conference and senior libero received honorable mention accolades, it was announced this evening at the Big Sky Tournament banquet.
Both players started all 30 matches for a Hornet volleyball squad that finished the season 12-18 overall and 8-12 in the conference. Sacramento State won its final three matches of the year, and was eliminated from Big Sky Tournament contention on the final day of the regular season.
Beal received her first career all-conference accolade after averaging 2.69 kills and 1.12 blocks per set while hitting .235. She increased those averages to 3.01 kills and 1.14 blocks per set with a .246 hitting percentage against conference competition. In fact, over the team's final nine matches of the season, Beal hit a team-high .343 with 3.46 kills and 1.21 blocks per set.
The Dixon native recorded double figures in kills on 15 occasions, and had a pair of double-doubles, including 13 kills and 10 blocks vs. Weber State, and 16 kills and 10 blocks against Montana State. In Big Sky matches, she ranked ninth among league leaders in both blocks (1.14) and points (3.68) per set.
A fourth-year senior, Kordic received honorable mention all-league accolades for the first time in her career. After spending the first three years of her career at right back, the San Ramon product made the move to libero this season. She responded with career-high averages of 0.44 aces and 4.93 digs per set, marks which rank her first and third, respectively, among conference leaders. In addition, the aces rank 16th in the nation, and the digs are the 70th best mark.
She never missed a match during her career, resulting in a streak of 126 consecutive matches played. Kordic finishes her Hornet tenure ranked fifth in school history in service aces (159) and ninth in digs (1,512). In addition, her 587 digs this year are the seventh best Hornet single-season mark and her 4.93 digs per set are tied for the fifth best single-season mark.
