FULL NJCAA ALL-AMERICAN LIST
YUMA, Ariz---Armed with an incredible serve and shouldering a bulk of the Matador attack in 2019, Sophomore Melissa Garciglia Banuelos was named to the NJCAA All-American 2nd team announced Wednesday.
Garciglia Banuelos, who led the team in kills and ranks second in the conference, was named to the first team of both the ACCAC and Region I in November. Garciglia Banuelos led AWC with 357 kills in 29 matches for the Matadors, the only Mat to appear in every contest this season.
Her serve was feared around the conference as Garciglia Banuelos broke the school record for aces in a season with 64, leading the conference by a wide margin.
The Matadors finished the season 15-15 and earned a trip to the Region I Final.
