Kamaile Hiapo - First Team

Kamaile Hiapo competed in Minnesota on December 14th as a First - Team All American for the West Team. It was a phenomenal match and she represented Arizona well!

Hiapo was the top Libero for the West team. She was flown to Minnesota all expenses paid. Under Armour sponsored over $2,000 worth of items and she competed with the top athletes from the country who will be going to Stanford, Nebraska, etc.

Fun note: Kamaile had a DS uniform because Under Armour only ordered 1 Libero uniform. Kamaile played half the set with the other Libero, but was allowed to attack.
