SAN FRANCISCO – Former Billings Senior standout Taylor Mims has been named to the all-Pac-12 volleyball first team, the league announced Tuesday.
Mims, who won three Class AA state championships while at Senior, is a 6-foot-3 outside hitter at Washington State. She leads the Cougars in kills with a 4.10 per set average, which ranks fifth in the Pac-12. She also ranks in the top 35 nationally in total attacks (16th with 1,408), points (18th with 558.5), total kills (19th with 488), attacks per set (24th at 11.83), points per set (28th at 4.69 pps) and kills per set (35th at 4.1 kps).
The all-conference selection is just the latest accolade in a stellar junior season for Mims. She was named to the Cougar Challenge all-tournament team and was named the MVP of the Missouri State Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Invitational during the season.
Mims’ season total of 1,408 attack attempts is the second-best single season in WSU history. Her 558.5 points rank third and 488 kills rank fourth. She ranks in the top 23 in seven career categories.
Mims was an all-Pac-12 honorable mention choice last season.
Washington State carries a 17-15 overall record into the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars will play Florida State in a first-round match on Dec. 1 at 3:30 p.m. (MT) at Lincoln, Neb.
