Sophomore volleyball players Eve Stephens and Ellen Floyd garnered all-West Region honors for the UAA volleyball team Wednesday.

Stephens, a right-side hitter from Palmer, was on all-region pick on two teams — the American Volleyball Coaches Association team and the D2CCA team, chosen by sports information directors. Floyd, a setter from Pensacola, Florida, was named to the AVCA squad.

Stephens led the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in kills per set with 3.97, and Floyd ranked second in the conference in assists per set with 10.23.

Going into the NCAA Tournament, which starts Thursday in San Bernardino, California, Stephens has a .265 attack percentage with 0.88 blocks per set and 2.29 digs per set. Floyd averages 2.73 digs, 0.73 blocks and 0.44 aces per set.

Both players earned all-GNAC honors a week ago. On Thursday they’ll lead UAA (22-6) into a first-round tournament match against UC San Diego (18-8).
