Hart Named AVCA All-Regional Honorable Mention

Apr 13, 2021

LOUISVILLE, Kent. – Colorado volleyball redshirt junior Meegan Hart was named to the AVCA Pacific South All-Region Honorable Mention, the association announced Tuesday morning.
"I'm excited to see Meegan get some recognition for her play this season," said head coach Jesse Mahoney. "She was a consistent presence for us all year."
Hart was named an All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention last week, her first conference honor after leading Colorado with 64 total blocks in 68 sets. She also had 118 kills and a .301 hitting percentage and was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for the second time in her career after she had 13 kills for a .545 hitting percentage, an ace, four digs and eight blocks against No.12 UCLA.
The Pac-12 earned five on the All-Regional team, three from Utah and two from UCLA. Utah's Dani Drews was named the All-Regional Player of the Year while Arizona's Sofia Maldonado Diaz was named the Freshman of the Year.
This is Colorado's first regional honoree since the 2018 season when Alexa Smith and Naghede Abu both were named to the AVCA All-Regional First Team and went on to be named All-Americans. Hart will automatically be in the running to be named an All-American.
