SAN FRANCISCO – Mac May earned the second Pac-12 Player of the Year honor of her career, Zoe Fleck garnered her second Pac-12 Libero of the Year award and head coach Michael Sealy was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year to headline the UCLA women's volleyball team's conference end-of-season awards. May, Fleck and middle blocker Anna Dodson were named to the All-Pac-12 Team, and Shelby Martin and élan McCall were selected to the All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention list.
May, a graduate outside hitter from Dubuque, Iowa, is the second Bruin in program history to win the award twice (Daiva Tomkus, 1988 and 1989). UCLA has now won seven Pac-12 Player of the Year awards. May leads the Bruins with 40 service aces and 495 kills, ranking second in the conference with 4.76 kills per set. May will be the only player in program history to have led UCLA in kills in four seasons. She earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honors on Oct. 4 after a 39-kill performance at Washington State on Oct. 3. May eclipsed 2,000 career kills last Friday on Nov. 26 at USC, becoming the fourth Bruin in program history to achieve the feat and the first since the beginning of the rally scoring era (2001-present).
Fleck, a senior defensive specialist/libero from Granada Hills, Calif., is the first Bruin to win back-to-back Pac-12 Libero of the Year awards since Taylor Formico (2016 and 2017). Fleck leads UCLA with 414 digs, averaging 3.94 digs per set. She was a two-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week award winner this season on Oct. 11 and Nov. 1.
Sealy and Washington State head coach Jen Greeny were named Pac-12 Co-Coaches of the Year. Sealy earned his first Pac-12 Coach of the Year accolade after guiding the Bruins to a 23-5 record (.824) for the best regular-season winning percentage of his career. The 23 wins were his most in a regular season since UCLA's 2016 season. Sealy's 16 conference wins are the most since the Bruins' 17 wins in their 2011 National Championship campaign.
Dodson, a middle blocker from Fort Collins, Colo., leads the Bruins with a .348 hitting percentage (min. 150 attempts) and 101 total blocks. Dodson has recorded 198 kills and is averaging 1.90 kills per set. She has notched double-figure points in 11 matches this season.  
Martin, a setter from Waxahachie, Texas, ranks third in the Pac-12 with 10.53 assists per set and has averaged 2.05 digs per set. Martin has recorded four 50-assist performances this season and has tallied 77 kills at a .337 hitting percentage.
McCall, an outside hitter from Austin, Texas, ranks third amongst Pac-12 attackers and second on the UCLA squad with 2.55 digs per set (247 total digs). McCall has racked up 121 kills and is averaging 1.25 kills per set. She is tied with May with 0.38 aces per set (37 total aces).
