TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona junior outside hitter Madi Kingdon was named to the AVCA Pacific South All-Region Team, the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced on Tuesday.

Kingdon finished the season with 508 kills on the season – the sixth most in Arizona single-season history. In addition, she now has 1,312 kills for her career – already sixth on the school's all-time kills list with still another season to go.

For the season, Kingdon recorded 378 digs, 79 blocks and 36 service aces to go along with her 508 kills. She finished first in the Pac-12 in points, while ranking third in kills and fourth in service aces. Meanwhile, she recorded 16 double-doubles on the year, which ranked second on the team. She was also named to the All-Pac-12 Team earlier this month.

The junior from Phoenix was also named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on two separate occasions this year, while also being named Arizona Desert Classic Tournament MVP and Wildcat Classic Tournament MVP. She also earned all-tournament honors at the Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Volleyball Challenge in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Kingdon's selection marked the first time a Wildcat had been selected to the all-region team since Kim Glass and Jen Abernathy were selected in 2005.

Meanwhile, freshman setter Penina Snuka was named to the honorable mention all-region team. Snuka finished the season with a league-best 18 double-doubles, which also ranked among the most for a freshman nationally. In addition, she dished out 1,196 assists, which ranked sixth in the league. She also added 339 digs, 60 kills and 37 blocks in her inaugural season. She was also named Pac-12 Freshman of the Week on two separate occasions on the season.
