The AVCA High School Beach All-America Team includes a pair of Rainbow Wahine freshmen Ashley Stevens and Paige Dreeuws were both named honorable mention.
The pair continue a tradition of high school All-Americans landing at UH. Previous Rainbow Wahine honorees are Gianna Guinasso (first team), Hi’ilawe Huddleston (HM), and Ka’iwi Schucht (HM), all of whom made the inaugural list in 2014. Morgan Martin (first team), Chloe Luyties (HM), and Emma Smith (HM) gained recognition last year. A total of seven high school All-Americans now grace the 2018 Rainbow Wahine roster.
The 5-7 Dreeuws played four years of indoor volleyball at San Marcos High School. On the beach, Dreeuws won last June’s Queen of the Beach Invitational in Hermosa Beach. In the process, she beat out 63 other of the best high school players from California.
The 5-6 Stevens, from Huntington Beach High School, is rated AAA, won the 2017 AVPFIrst/JBVL Tournament in Huntington Beach, was the Queen of the Beach champion at the 2016 Las Vegas Invitational, and placed fifth at the 2015 AAU Junior Nationals.
Dreeuws and Stevens are among eight newcomers who join a UH squad that finished 29-7 overall and a program-best third at the NCAA Beach Volleyball Championships in 2017.
