New Mexico State sophomore Meredith Hays has earned honorable mention honors on the 2012 All-West Region team that was announced by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), Tuesday, Dec. 4. She is one of three WAC volleyball players to be selected to the team.
The outside hitter and native of Hereford, Texas joins Utah State's Shay Sorenson as an honorable mention honoree, while UTSA's McKenzie Adams was selected to the team.

Hays, the reigning West Region Freshman of the Year, was named MVP of the WAC Tournament after leading the fourth-seeded Aggies to the title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. She ranked third in the WAC in kills (3.92) and points (4.48) and fifth in service aces (0.28) per set. A first team All-WAC selection, she was named WAC Player of the Week once this season.

Those named to the all-region teams are now eligible for All-America honors, which will be announced next week during the AVCA Convention.
