Three Broncos Earn All-CCAA Honors
Allison Anderson, sophomore, women’s volleyball
Kimberly Van Beek, senior, women’s volleyball

Cal Poly Pomona’s women’s volleyball team was well represented on the All-California Collegiate Athletic Association squads that were announced by the CCAA in mid-November.

Sophomore Allison Anderson and seniors Kimberly Van Beek and Lindsay Fischer were all named to the All-CCAA second team in voting done by the conference coaches.

This is the second consecutive year the Broncos have placed three players on All-CCAA teams. Last year, Fischer earned first-team recognition, while Van Beek and Kimberly Bullock earned second-team honors.

Anderson, a resident of Chino Hills, enjoyed a breakout season for the Broncos in 2003. She led the team in kills with 442 and blocks with 104. She reached double figures in kills in 27 of the Broncos’ 30 matches. This is her first All-CCAA selection.

Van Beek, a resident of Artesia, had another spectacular season and had a career high in kills with 356. She also had 83 blocks and was second in both categories on the team. She finished her Cal Poly Pomona career with 1,116 kills (fourth all-time), 138 service aces (fourth) and 346 blocks (fifth). This was Van Beek?s second All-CCAA honor.

Fischer, a resident of Alta Loma, finished a strong season in 2003. She was third on the team in kills with 315, third in blocks with 62 and first in digs with 299. She finished her Cal Poly Pomona career third in kills with 1,274. This is her third All-CCAA honor. She also made the first team in 2002 and the second team in 2000. She is only the fifth player in the history of the program to earn All-CCAA honors three times.
