CSU's Paige voted to COBRA Magazine all-national team

Jan. 2, 2013

Colorado State middle blocker Brieon Paige has earned third-team all-national honors from COBRA Magazine. The publication made the announcement this week.

Paige, who recently completed her senior season, was named to the magazine’s national team for the second consecutive season. In 2010, she was an honorable mention.

COBRA Magazine celebrates 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.

Paige ranked second in the Mountain West in hitting percentage (.356), and averaged 2.57 kills per set (third on the team) and 0.97 blocks per set (second on the team) as a senior, earning her second All-Mountain West selection. She also was an AVCA All-West region honorable mention.

This month's issue of COBRA Magazine is available online. Paige is featured on page 56.

The daughter of Paula and Stephone—who played football at Fresno State and 12 years in the NFL— Paige graduated from CSU in December with a degree in communications.
