Averill, a junior middle blocker from San Jose, Calif., was a first team selection while Sedore, a junior opposite from Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada, was a second team pick. Both were named honorable mention a year ago.
BYU outside hitter Taylor Sander was the league’s player of the year for the second straight year while USC outside hitter Lucas Yoder garnered freshman of the year honors.
Averill ranked second in the league in hitting percentage (.477) and fifth in blocking (1.22 per set). He also averaged 2.17 kills per set and had 14 service aces. Sedore led the team with a 3.70 kills per set average that ranked ninth in the MPSF. He also had a team-high 26 service aces and averaged 1.01 digs and 0.55 blocks per set while hitting at a .290 clip.
The Rainbow Warriors concluded their season last week after failing to finish in the top eight of the league standings. The top eight teams qualified for the MPSF Tournament with the champion earning the league’s automatic bid into the NCAA Championships.
