Three Nighthawks Named All-Region

Two members of the NOVA volleyball team were named First Team All-Region 20 and one earned a second-team accolade. The all-region teams were voted on by the Region 20 Division II coaches.

Taking first-team honors were outside hitter Brittany Connatser and setter Sarah Abisourour. Right side hitter Deveis Wooten was named second team.

Connatser led the Nighthawks and Region 20 with 367 kills and was third in the region in kills per set with 3.90. This season the Fairfax native had three matches where she had 20 or more kills – including 22 against Montgomery.
