TUCSON, Ariz.- Sophomore Kim Glass has been named the 2003 All-Pac-10 team in a vote by conference coaches, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced on Tuesday. The honor is the second in her career at UA and is the Wildcats' 21st all-time honoree.
Glass, Arizona's leader in nearly every statistical category, finished as the top player in Pac-10 play in kills per game (5.83) and in points per game (6.73) and fourth in service aces per game (0.42). She finished the conference season with 385 kills on .251 hitting, 28 service aces, 202 digs and 53 total blocks.
Classmates Bre Ladd and Jennifer Abernathy were also both recognized by the conference coaches with honorable mention all-conference honors. Ladd led all Arizona players with a .329 hitting percentage against conference competition and finished with a 1.08 bpg average. Abernathy was second only to Glass on the Arizona roster in kills against Pac-10 teams, finishing with 223 (3.54 kpg).
A pair of Arizona newcomers, Kristina Baum and Stephanie Butkus, were recognized with honorable mention all-freshman honors as well. Baum finished the Pac-10 season with an even 100 kills (1.54 kpg) and Butkus led the Wildcats with an 11.08 apg average in Pac-10 play.
USC's April Ross was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year, Stanford's Kristin Richards was tabbed as the Freshman of the Year and Cal's Rich Feller garnered Coach of the Year honors.
