Cal State San Bernardino senior Jessica Granados repeated as Most Valuable Player in the tough CCAA. The announcement came on Thursday, the first day of the Division II West Regional at Cal State.
It is a well-deserved honor for a fine athlete.
Granados was clearly the best player. There were a couple of other players on other teams vwith more kills. But the Coyotes boasted perhaps the most balanced attack in the conference. Coach Kim Cherniss also used her backups for quite a few games against lesser teams.
Given the Coyotes success, Granados shoulod be a contender for national player of the year honors as well.
Four other Coyote players were also recognized. Sara Rice, Megan Haas and Sara Hoffman also made the first team while Ashtin Hall was selected to the second team.
Cal Poly Pomona had four players named with Vanessa Williams and Jenna Young on first team and Jasmine Davis and Anne-Marie Hoffmans placed on the second team. Williams earned player of the week honors twice and likely drew some consideration for player of the year.
Davis emerged as one of the most improved players in the entire conference.
