A major player in the breakout 12-15 season for the UC Davis women’s volleyball team was freshman Keala Peterson.
Peterson was just recently awarded All-Freshman honors for the Big West Conference – the first time a player from UC Davis has been given the honor.
The Analy High School product started in 22 matches this season, totaling 241 kills, 48 digs and 25 blocks. On three separate occasions, Peterson recorded her season-best 15 kills, along with five other matches where she posted double-digit kill totals.
One of her 15-kill performances came in UC Davis‘ 3-1 win against Sacramento State. It was the first Aggies victory over the Hornets since 1992.
