Big Sky All-Conference Team
SACRAMENTO — Highlighted by senior outside hitter Sarah Davis being named to the first team, Sacramento State was represented on this year's Big Sky volleyball all-conference team by three players. The list of Hornets also includes junior middle blocker Cianna Andrews and sophomore setter Ashtin Olin named to the second team.
The Hornets finished the regular season with a 14-17 overall record and a 9-9 mark in the conference, good enough for the No. 5 seed at this week's Big Sky Tournament. The eight-team postseason event is being hosted inside the Nest on the Sacramento State campus and will take place Nov. 28-30. The Hornets will play their quarterfinal matchup on Thanksgiving Day at 7 p.m. vs. No. 4 seed Montana State.
Davis and Andrews are first time all-conference selections and Olin has now been named to the second team each of her first two active seasons with the team.
