UCSB’s Keenan Sanders Named Freshman All-American

UC Santa Barbara middle blocker Keenan Sanders has been named a 2017 Freshman All-American by Off the Block, it was announced on Wednesday morning. 

The 11-man Freshman All-America Team was voted on by a nationwide committee of coaches and media members. 

A San Diego native, Sanders was one of the top offensive middles in the country, ranking within the top-15 nationally with a .373 hitting percentage.

An MPSF All-Freshman pick, he ranked first among league middles in digs (0.58 per set) and second in kills per set (2.16). He also ranked second in kills among MPSF freshmen. 

Standout performances included a season-high 14 kills on .632 hitting against UC Irvine on Feb. 25 and a 10-kill outing on a season-best .643 hitting percentage against USC on Jan. 18.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
