The UH junior is an AVCA Division I All-America team honorable mention
Junior left-side hitter Jamie Houston, who led Hawaii to its 10th Western Athletic Conference volleyball championship, was one of 62 players named an AVCA Division I All-America honorable mention yesterday.
The WAC player of the year, who was second nationally in kill average (5.51 kpg), was a third-team selection last year. This season Houston moved into fourth place on the UH career kill list with 1,611 and is third on the career kill average list behind Kim Willoughby and Teee Williams.
Named to the third team yesterday was Washington sophomore libero Tamari Miyashiro (Kalani '05). St. John's junior libero Lena Yee (Moanalua '05) was an honorable mention.
Nebraska senior opposite Sarah Pavan became only the fourth player, and the first player not from Stanford, to make the first team four consecutive years. She joins Cardinal players Bev Oden (1989-92), Kerri Walsh (1996-99) and Logan Tom (1999-2002) in accomplishing that feat.
Since the AVCA awards began in 1981, Hawaii has had at least one player honored every year except for 1984, 1992 and 1997.
