    LEXINGTON, Ky. — The storied collegiate career of University of Colorado senior Taylor Simpson might be over, but awards are still coming in as she was named to the AVCA All-Pacific South Region Team on Tuesday.

    “Taylor's stellar play on the court grabbed the attention of many opponents this season, and these postseason awards are a testament to that since they are selected by votes from head coaches in the region,” CU head coach Liz Kritza said. “She is one of the elite players in the country and this honor is well deserved. While she continues to garner attention for her abilities, she is the first to credit her teammates; she is confident and humble, which speaks volumes of her character.”

    Simpson, a 6-3 outside hitter from Colorado Springs, Colo., had an outstanding 2014 season which included breaking several records at CU. She broke the single season kills record of 528, which had stood for 17 years, with 591 kills, a single season mark which will stand for many years. She recorded a career-best 32 kills in the five-set thriller against Colorado State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Dec. 6. The 32 kills tied for the eighth-best total in Buffs history. She also hit .426 in the match, her third best hitting efficiency of the year.

    Congrats to Ms. Simpson for the big honor!

    (Note- in addition to being an honor on its own, this is also important for All-American consideration as only all-region selections are eligible to be voted on for All American honors.)

    She deserves All-American.

    Some of our past stars in sports fade away and go on to forget about CU. Others, like Chauncey, stay close and continue to he Proud buffs.

    i hope Taylor Simpson will continue to be a part of CU athletics. She has done so much for our program. All-American and Forever Buff!! :)
