University of Colorado senior Alexis Austin has been named to the AVCA All-Pacific South Region team and senior Nicole Edelman earned all-region honorable mention honors, the AVCA announced Tuesday.
"These two women have had fantastic careers at Colorado, so it is appropriate in their senior seasons that they have been recognized with these all-region honors," interim head coach J.T. Wenger said. "They have been an outstanding part of this program and are very deserving of this recognition."
The duo was also named to the All-Pac-12 team last week after helping the Buffs finish the 2015 season with a 19-13 mark.
Austin is the second Buff in as many years to earn one of the 14 spots on the all-region team. (Taylor Simpson was named to the team in 2014). The outside hitter started in all 32 matches for the Buffs and averaged 4.05 kills per set, which is fifth in the Pac-12, while hitting .260. She also recorded 1.67 digs per set, 0.66 blocks per set and 4.56 points per set (fifth in the conference).
Edelman helped guide the Buffs to a .234 hitting percentage in 2015, which was fifth in the conference. Edelman handed out 1,229 assists, averaging 9.91 per set, the sixth best mark in the conference.
