Congrats to Umlauft, Walker and Zemljak … all-MPSF

April 21st, 2011

UH’s release:

Jonas Umlauft, Joshua Walker and Nejc Zemljak were named to the all-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation teams announced by the league office today.

Umlauft was selected to the 12-member first team while Walker and Zemljak were each named to the 12-member second team.

USC’s Murphy Troy was named the Player of the Year and Bill Ferguson was Coach of the Year. BYU’s Taylor Sander was named the league’s Freshman of the Year.

Umlauft, a sophomore from Stadtbergen, Germany, became the first UH athlete to earn first-team honors since Brian Beckwith and Lauri Hakala in 2006. Last season, he was named second-team all-league and Freshman of the Year while Walker was named to the third team and Zemljak an honorable mention.

This season, Umlauft is leading the nation in kills at 5.55 per set while hitting .345. He has hit for 20 or more kills in 14 matches and was the team’s leader in kills in all but two matches this season. Earlier this season, he was named the AVCA and MPSF Player of the Week, following his performance in UH’s sweep of No. 5 Long Beach State in which he had 22 kills in each match and averaged 6.29 kills per set.

Walker, a senior from Virginia Beach, Va., is having his most efficient season of his career. Despite averaging a career-low 3.57 kills per set average, the Virginia Beach, Va., native is hitting a career-best .332, including .350 in league play. Walker ranks fifth all-time in school history 1,420 kills with 80 career double-figure matches, including 15 with 20-kills or more.

Zemljak, a senior from Maribor, Slovenia, was one of three setters named to the first and second teams. This season, he is averaging 10.96 assists per set, eighth-best nationally, while also leading the team in digs at 1.92 per set. Zemljak, a four-year letterwinner, has guided the Warriors to .400 hitting or better in six matches, including a season-high .543 against Cal State Northridge.

The Warriors will compete in the MPSF Tournament quarterfinals where they will face UC Irvine Saturday (4 p.m. HST) at Crawford Court.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this paragraph is amazing. Thanks!

    After I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is
    added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there a means you are able to remove me from
    that service? Appreciate it!

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
    fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    With thanks!
