Three Huskies Make UTSA Classic Tourney Team
Washington finished up play at the UTSA Classic in San Antonio back on Friday, but the host Roadrunners still had a match to play against Middle Tennessee State on Saturday, so the All-Tournament Team was not named until that point.
The Huskies swept both opponents to take the tournament title, and were thusly rewarded with three of the six players named to the team. Junior Becky Perry was chosen tournament MVP, as she led UW in kills in each match with 12 against UTSA and 13 against MTSU, while hitting .467 for the weekend and providing seven blocks.
Senior Tamari Miyashiro was also named to the team. The defensive stalwart had 33 digs over the weekend and passed the 2,000 career digs mark, becoming the second Husky ever to do so.
Also earning All-Tournament honors was senior Jill Collymore. She had 15 kills and five aces over the two matches and was the catalyst behind an amazing 15-point run that Washington put on Middle Tennessee State in the final set on Friday. Collymore's divebombing serve took the Huskies from 8-5 to 23-5 in the set which they went on to win 25-7, tying the record-low score for a UW opponent in the rally scoring era.
Rounding out the All-Touranment Team was Leslie Clark and Ashley Mead of MTSU, and Amber Brooks of UTSA.
