LA JOLLA, Calif. - UC San Diego junior outside hitter Roxanne Brunsting was named AVCA All-West Region and a Daktronics West Region Volleyball All-Star First Team member Wednesday. Junior outside Katie Condon and sophomore middle blocker Julia Freidenberg were selected to the Daktronics second team.
Brunsting (Chula Vista) led the Tritons in service aces, was second on the team in kills, points and assists and third in digs. She had six triple-doubles to her credit this season. A 2009 AVCA All-American and Daktronics West Region All-Star First Team pick, Brunsting was seventh in the CCAA in aces and ninth in digs.
By virtue of being named first team all-region, Brunsting will automatically be on the Daktronics All-American national ballot. The selections will be announced on Dec. 1.
Condon led the Tritons in kills, attack attempts and points, and was second in aces and third in digs. The Pasadena native had 1,052 total attacks on the season, over 300 more than the next player on the list.
Freidenberg (Seattle, Wash.) hit .347 (213-49-473) from the middle, the best on the roster. Her attack percentage was third among all CCAA players. She also led the Tritons in blocks, totaling 74 and averaging .73 per set.
All three were All-CCAA First Team selections this year as well.
Cal State San Bernardino middle Samantha Middleborn was named the Daktronics West Region Volleyball Player of the Year.
UC San Diego finished its 2010 campaign with a 19-9 overall record and advanced to the semfinals of the NCAA West Regional.
