 The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced the 2014 AVCA All-America Teams on Wednesday with University of Hawai'i middle blocker Olivia Magill garnering honorable mention honors.

Magill, named both AVCA all-region and Big West First-Team All-Conference, dominated the Big West both on both sides of the net with league highs in hitting percentage (.405) and blocks (1.34). She currently ranks 16th in the nation with her stellar attacking mark while guiding the 'Bows to the nation's sixth-best blocking average of 3.00.

The Shoreline, Wash. native had her best outing early in the season, recording 15 kills and a team season-high 12 blocks. She posted double-figures in kills in 15 matches and hit north of .400 in 17 contests highlighted by her eight-kill, zero-error performance at Cal State Fullerton (11/1) which garnered her league player of the week honors.

Hawai'i concluded its season with a loss at Washington in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The 'Bows finished 22-7 overall and 13-3 in the Big West.
