High school volleyball: Deer Creek's Polcovich, Stillwater's Phillips named to AVCA All-Region team
Stillwater's Lauren Phillips and Deer Creek's Teagan Polcovich were named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-Region team on Wednesday.
Phillips and Polcovich each earned the honor in Region 4, which includes Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. This is the inaugural season for the AVCA's All-Region awards.
The athletes on each All-Region team is determined by the number of Under Armour All-America nominations each region receives. The top 50 percent of nominated athletes will be the athletes who are named All-Region, according to the AVCA regional committees.
Phillips, a Wichita State commit, and Polcovich, a Missouri State beach commit, each had stellar seasons and careers. Last season, Phillips helped lead Stillwater to the Class 6A state title match. This year, Polcovich was dominant, leading the Antlers in digs (472), kills (399) and hitting percentage (.275).
The 2019 Under Armour All-America Teams will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 6th.
