Lancers well represented with honors

The 2020-21 All-WAC teams have been named, following a vote of the WAC’s nine head coaches. California Baptist’s Ane Olaeta was named WAC Player of the Year while the Lancers’ head coach Jarrod Olson was named WAC Coach of the Year. For the fourth time since 2000, just three different schools make up the All-WAC first team. Alongside CBU’s Olaeta is fellow Lancer and San Jacinto native, Britney Thomas, who was also named to the All-Defensive team as well. The All-WAC second team included California Baptist’s Caitlyn Harper and the All-Newcomer Team had California Baptist’s Nicole Avila-Ambrosi on it as well.
