Volleyball's Quiroga Nets First-Team AVCA All-America Honors
By: UCLA Athletics

Gonzalo Quiroga, a senior outside hitter, was selected to the 2014  AVCA (American Volleyball Coaches Association) Division I-II Men's Volleyball All-Ameica team announced on Thursday. It is the second straight season that the native of Argentina has earned first-team honors.

Senior hitter Robart Page and senior opposite Spencer Rowe were each named honorable mention AVCA All-Americans.

UCLA served an MPSF-high of 151 aces during the regular season, led by Quiroga's MPSF-leading total of 56.The team tied the school record with 14 aces v. BYU (4/12) with Quiroga registering a season-best six aces.He ranked fourth in the nation in service ace average (0.50).

Quiroga topped the MPSF with his 0.50 service aces/set average, a mark which flirted with Mark Williams' (2001) school record mark of 0.51. He had double-digit kills in 27 of the 29 matches this season and had at least three service aces in nine matches during the year. Quiroga, who holds the school career record for total aces (194) finished the regular season ranked eighth in the MPSF in kills (3.71) and rated ninth in the nation, fourth in the league, in points per set (4.54).

Last week, Quiroga was named a first-team All-MPSF selection and was one of four finalists for the National Server of the Year Award. Second-team All-MPSF honors went to Page and Rowe. Mitch Stahl and Jackson Bantle were listed on the All-MPSF Freshman team.

Page registered double-digit kills in 23 matches and surpassed the 20-kill mark a team-high four times this season. He ended the regular season ranked seventh in the MPSF in kills per set (3.79), a mark which ranks among the top 10 in school history in the rally scoring era (2001-present).

Rowe had a then career-best 19 kills at BYU (Mar. 29) and topped that performance with a 24-kill effort while hitting .525 at CSUN on Apr. 3. He also posted career-bests this season in hitting percentage, aces (2), total blocks (7), digs (9) and points (27.0.
