Ashley Wenz, Springboro High School Graduate, recently competed at the USA Volleyball Collegiate Beach Championships at Hermosa Beach, CA, in the main draw.
The Arizona State Sun Devils' top duo of Oluoma Okaro and Ashley Wenz competed at the championships, as one of forty six (46) pairs in the Women's Division.
Okaro and Wenz reached the finals of their Qualifications Pool bracket, knocking off Grand Canyon University, before ultimately falling to LSU in the finals. This earned Okaro and Wenz a #12 Seed in Women's Single Elimination Championship Tournament, which consisted of the final twenty four (24) teams to qualify. Okaro and Wenz were upset in the first round by #21 Seed Charleston, who ended up reaching the Quaterfinals.
Wrapping up their careers in style, Okaro and Wenz had a historic start to their partnership. They started with a perfect 12-0 record, winning the first Pac-12 Pair of the Week nod in Sun Devil history. Both earned All-Pac-12 honors as well, with Okaro making the first team and Wenz making the second team. They finished the year with a 20-4 record and with five wins over pairs on top-20 teams.
