After leading the Cal Poly volleyball team to a 25-3 record, its second consecutive Big West title and NCAA Tournament appearance, junior Torrey Van Winden and senior Adlee Van Winden were both named to the Pacific North AVCA All-Region Team, it was announced Tuesday.

Torrey Van Winden, who was named the 2018 Big West Player of the Year, finished the season second in the Big West and third in the nation in kills per set at 5.07. She was also the Big West leader in hitting percentage at .365, which was also good for the ninth best single-season hitting percentage in Cal Poly volleyball history. Her 5.07 kills per set was also second-most in a single season in program history. She was also second on the team in digs with 2.80 per set and third in blocks with 77. For the season, she recorded 12 double-doubles and finished with 20 or more kills in nine matches.

Adlee Van Winden, who was named First Team All-Big West for the third time in her career earlier this season, was second on the team and ninth in the Big West with 2.92 kills per set this year. She was also third on the team in digs per set at 2.49 and led the team in service aces with 23. She posted 20 or more kills three times and had six double-doubles this season. This was also the fourth straight year she played in every set for the Mustangs, having started every match of her career and never missed a set.

Adlee finishes her career fifth in program history in career kills (1,372) and ninth in career kills per set (3.46).

For Torrey, this is the third time in her career she has been named to the AVCA All-Region Team. It is the first time for Adlee after being named Honorable Mention last season.

Cal Poly won its second straight Big West title for the first time since 2006-07 after going 15-1 in conference. The team also earned its second straight NCAA Tournament appearance where it fell to San Diego 3-1 in the first round.
