RIVERSIDE, Calif. --- The 2012 NCCAA All-West Region teams were announced Tuesday and three California Baptist University athletes made the teams.

Ingrid Carmona and Malika O'Brien were named to the first team, while Faith Steinwedell was named to the second team. Kim McCalmont just missed the list, but was an honorable mention.

Carmona, CBU's senior leader, has been a driving force both offensively and defensively this season, leading the Lancers in both kills (392) and digs (298). Carmona just recently surpassed the Lancers' career kills mark with 1,880 in her career. She was an NCCAA All-American last season and currently is third in the NCCAA with 4.13 kills per set.

O'Brien leads the Lancers in total blocks this season with 136, tallying 29 solo stuffs and 107 block assists. The freshman middle blocker also has posted 211 kills (third on the team) and a .284 hitting percentage (best among players with more than 100 attempts). O'Brien is second in the NCCAA with 1.44 blocks per set this season.

CBU and Fresno Pacific were the only two teams with multiple players named to the first team squad.

Joining the Lancers squad this season, senior opposite hitter Steinwedell has posted the fourth most kills on the team with 207, hitting .267. She totaled the third most digs of any Lancer with 256 and had third most total blocks with 56.

McCalmont was one of eight players on the honorable mention list. She was second on CBU with 225 kills (2.59 per set) this season.

The Lancers open NCCAA Regional play on Thursday, hosting Azusa Pacific in a first round matchup.
