Kamana'o WAC volleyball preseason Player of Year
Setter Kanoe Kamana'o was named the Western Athletic Conference preseason Player of the Year and four other members of the University of Hawai'i teammates joined her on the all-conference squad announced yesterday.
The 12-member team was voted upon by the league's coaches.
Joining Kamana'o on the team were fellow Rainbow Wahine Tara Hittle, Jamie Houston, Sarah Mason and Juliana Sanders.
Kamana'o was the 2004 and '05 WAC Player of the Year, and Mason and Sanders joined her on the 2005 all-conference team. Hittle and Houston were second-team all-WAC selections last year.
New Mexico State, which was picked to finish second to UH in the coaches' preseason poll, placed four players on the preseason all-conference squad.
