CSU Bakersfield's top beach volleyball pair, freshman, Emily Hansen, and grad student Sydeny Haynes, have been named to the 2018 Big West Women's Beach Volleyball All-Conference Second Team by a league-wide coaches' vote. 

Hansen is from Bakersfield and graduated from Centennial High School, while Haynes is from Vancouver, Wash.

The duo were CSUB's top beach volleyball duo finishing the season 8-19. They beat other top duo from Vanguard University and Sacramento State three times each and picked up win over the University of New Mexico and Cal State LA.
