Whitman College players make all-NWC volleyball team


WALLA WALLA - Whitman College sophomore Jillian Davis and teammate Courtney Brewer both earned all-Northwest Conference volleyball honors.

Davis, who battled through an injury-plagued season, was named to the All-NWC Second Team while Brewer received Honorable Mention recognition for a second straight season.

A 5-foot-9 outside hitter, Davis was named NWC Student-Athlete of the Week in late October after she averaged 4.1 kills and 2.2 digs in two home matches.

Brewer, a 5-foot-11 middle blocker, was a key contributor to the Missionary offense this fall while also helping anchor Whitman's defensive block at the net.

Second on the team in both kills and blocks, Brewer averaged 2.03 kills per set in 16 conference matches and was fifth in total blocks (58) during the conference season.
