Beach Vball: Two Pairs Earn All-OEC 2nd Team Honors

The number one pairs of Nikol Powers and Holly Hennessy and the number two pairs of Kiki Pearson and Mia Lara have been selected to the All-Orange Empire Conference Second team as voted by the coaches. 

The duo of Powers and Hennessy helped guide the Rustlers to four victories this season despite Powers breaking her finger early in the 2019 campaign. Pearson and Lara rotated back and fourth when Powers was out in the number one spot and rattled off some key conference wins to guide Golden West to three conference wins.
