GREENVILLE, Pa.--The Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) released its 2020-21 All-PAC women's volleyball teams and conference award winners Thursday afternoon. The league's 10 head coaches determined, by vote, this year’s All-PAC teams and annual award winners.
Westminster College junior Maya Steward (Los Angeles, Calif. | William Howard Taft) was voted the PAC Player of the Year.
PAC Coach of the Year honors went to Westminster's 28th-year head coach Tammy Swearingen. It is Swearingen's sixth coach of the year citation (2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2019).
Steward helped lead Westminster the No. 1 seed in this year's PAC Championship Tournament and fourth-straight appearance in the league's title match. The Titans won their fifth PAC title on April 15 with a straight-set win over No. 3 Grove City.
Steward earned Most Outstanding Player honors, along with a spot on the All-Tournament Team, after the conclusion of this year's six-team event.
A three-time All-PAC selection (second team in 2018 and 2019), Steward averaged 3.58 kills and 3.95 points per match while hitting .249 (118-35-334). Her 118 kills this spring ranked fourth in the league. Steward racked up 91 kills during Westminster's 8-0 conference regular season. She had 15 or more kills on three occasions this season, including tying her career high with 17 in the conference tournament title match.
Swearingen led Westminster to the No. 1 seed in the conference's championship tournament for the third-straight year. It was Westminster's fifth PAC championship since becoming eligible for the conference championship in 2002. Westminster finished its season 10-1 overall and 8-0 in the PAC. It was the program's first undefeated conference season since 2002.
