Two Cal Poly volleyball players were named on the All-CCAA
second-team last week at the conclusion of the regular season.
Senior setter Jasmine Davis and senior outside hitter Elizabeth
Diaz were given the honors for their efforts with the Broncos this
Diaz led the Broncos in kills with 329 for the season, with 3.04
kills/game against CCAA teams.
Diaz’s contribution to the team was more than offense, however.
Her senior leadership strengthened a young Broncos squad, of which
half were freshmen.
Davis, as setter delivered Diaz and other hitters with passes in
a pivotal offensive role for the Broncos.
She tallied 1,018 assists in the season to finish with 3,139
career assists, the fourth highest all-time at Cal Poly.
Davis also made 90 kills for Cal Poly, often sneaking a ball
over the net thwarting an unprepared defense.

The three conference leading teams all had five players
selected, demonstrating the unbalanced nature of CCAA volleyball
With the CCAA teams grouped into two packs, teams in the lower

Only one other player from this group was selected, a player
from Cal State Monterey Bay.
