The road trips will continue for Emily Maglio. The indoor and beach volleyball was one of 18 players selected to the Canadian Indoor National Team.

Maglio, who most recently earned AVCA All-America honorable mention honors in beach volleyball earlier this week, will be competing with Team Canada at the Challenge Cup — a continental pre-qualifier for the Volleyball Nations League to be held in Chateaugauay, Quebec — from May 31-June 2.

Canada also will compete in the Pan American Games in Peru the Women’s Olympic Qualifier in Russia laster this summer.

It’s been a busy travel time for Maglio, who was with the SandBows at the NCAA beach championships, flew to the Canadian indoor tryouts, then to Hawaii for graduation last Saturday.


All-American Stijn van Tilburg was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District 8 Men’s At-Large first team. Van Tilburg was one of 10 players named and is the first Rainbow Warrior selected to the list since Taylor Averill in 2015.

The Google Cloud Academic All-District teams are divided into geographic districts across the United States and Canada. District 8 includes the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai’i, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, and Canada.

The 10 honorees now advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot. First-, second-, and third-team (if applicable) Academic All-America honorees will be announced next month.

Three other Warriors have earned Academic All-America honors: Dejan Miladinovic (2002), Costas Theocharidis (2002 & ’03), and Jonas Umlauft (2011).
