RIVERSIDE, Calif. --- After its inaugural season in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, California Baptist University had three players earn all-conference honors Thursday.
Cabral led the Lancers with 520 kills this season, becoming CBU’s career leader in both kills and aces over the course of his senior campaign. Leading the Lancers to a 12-12 record in the mighty MPSF, Cabral averaged 4.19 kills per set, 0.43 aces per set, 1.45 digs per set and 0.56 blocks per set. He was second in the conference in kills per game and total points per game (4.90) and his aces average was good for third best in the MPSF.
Koepp finished the season second on the team with 483 kills, had 34 aces and a team high 222 digs. His 3.90 kills per game were sixth best in the MPSF and his 4.46 points per game ranked seventh. Koepp’s 1.79 digs per set also ranked 10th in the conference and his 0.27 aces were 11th.
McCalmont was the third member of CBU’s three pronged offensive attack, finishing the year with 326 kills and a .328 hitting percentage, best of the Lancers’ three all-conference honorees. McCalmont posted 25 aces, 169 digs and had 68 total blocks on the season.
Led by the three senior all-conference players, CBU’s attack recorded the most assists and kills in the MPSF and resulted in wins over 13 nationally ranked teams. In their final year of transition to the NCAA, CBU was ineligible for the conference tournament this season, but finished the year tied for sixth in the standings.
