King, Fleming win RMAC awards

With five of the top 25 hitters in the RMAC, Mesa State volleyball coach Dave Fleming sees a common denominator: setter Tara King.

The rest of the RMAC coaches apparently agreed, voting King, a junior from Steamboat Springs, the conference setter of the year.

King made the All-RMAC first team, and three of those hitters were also honored. Right-side hitter Tessa Andrews, a senior from Durango, made on the second team and middle blocker Antoinette McCormick, a sophomore from Grand Junction, and outside hitter Ali Tompkins, a senior from Fruita Monument, made the third team.

Fleming, who compiled his best RMAC record (16-3) in his five seasons at Mesa State in winning the West Division, was selected the co-coach of the year along with Nebraska-Kearney’s Rick Squires. Fleming is the first Mesa State volleyball coach to win the honor since the conference started voting for coach of the year in 1992.

Palisade High School graduate Kaity Edmiston, a senior middle blocker at Colorado School of Mines, made the second team.

Nebraska-Kearney’s Nikki Scott, a senior middle hitter, was voted player of the year, senior libero Amy Watanabe of Metro State the defensive player of the year and middle blocker Laura Brodie of CU-Colorado Springs the freshman of the year.
