Tom, Nnamani and McGee Named To AVCA Pacific All-Region Team
Dec. 11, 2002
Colorado Springs, Colo. - Senior outside hitter Logan Tom, junior middle blocker Sara McGee and sophomore outside hitter Ogonna Nnamani were named to the 2002 AVCA Pacific All-Region team announced for NCAA Division I schools today. All three are now eligible for All-America honors later this month.
Stanford placed more student-athletes on the all-region first-team than any other school in the Pacific Region.
Tom, a four-time all-region selection, was tabbed 2002 Pac-10 Player of the Year last month to become only the third player in league history to win the award twice. The 6-1 outside hitter leads the team in kills, digs and points per game and needs just 28 kills to surpass Kristin Klein (1988-91) as Stanford leader in career kills.
Nnamani, a two-time all-region pick, was a first-team All-Pac-10 selection last month and is second on the squad in kills, block solos and points per game. The 6-0 outside hitter ranks in the top 10 in the league in kills, hitting percentage and points per game.
McGee, a two-time all-region selection, was also a first-team All-Pac-10 pick last month and leads the team and conference in hitting percentage. Her current hitting percentage of .435 would shatter the Stanford single season record of .400 and ranks third in the Pac-10. She is second on the team and league in blocks per game and third on the squad in kills per game.
