SUU's Pelaez-Mailoto Honored by COBRA Magazine

Southern Utah University junior Analaine Pelaez-Mailoto has been named to the COBRA Magazine all-West Region team.

Pelaez-Mailoto led the Thunderbird attack in 2011 with a team-best 515 kills, averaging 4.15 per set. She was also tops on the team with 375 digs and 31 service aces.

The award is Pelaez-Mailoto's second of the postseason, having already garnered her third consecutive first-team all-Summit League honor.

COBRA magazine's purpose is to celebrate the success of volleyball players of African as well as Samoan and Tongan descent in hopes of encouraging young girls of those ethnic groups across the country to pursue the sport. She is the only player in the state of Utah appearing on the list, joining honorees from schools in Hawaii, California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Nebraska.
