Stanford's Tom Named AVCA First-team All-American
Dec. 13, 2000
The American Volleyball Coaches Association will present the 20th annual All-America awards Friday at the AVCA All-America/Player of the Year banquet at the Richmond (Va.) Marriott Hotel.
Stanford University sophomore Logan Tom and Long Beach State junior Cheryl Weaver are repeat AVCA Division I First-Team All-America selections from 1999. Loyola Marymount senior Sarah McFarland, UCLA junior Kristee Porter and Brigham Young junior Nina Pikkonen are two-time All-Americans having moved up fro the 1999 AVCA Division I Second-Team All-American squad to the first-team in 2000.
Tom, a two-time All-Pac-10 selection, led the Cardinal with 5.86 kills and 3.20 digs during the 2000 campaign after missing the first month and half competing in the 2000 Summer Olympics with the U.S. National Team. The Americans finished a surprising fourth in Sydney.
Tom, a 1999 All-American and Freshman of the Year selection, hit a stellar .350 on the year while tallying a team-high 23 service aces in only 16 matches.
The selections are made by the AVCA Division I All-America Committee.
