Volleyball Magazine released its 2013 NCAA Men’s All-American list in the July edition of the publication and Shorewood grad Matt West made the cut.

Matt received a 4 year scholarship to play volleyball for Pepperdine University in Malibu, California upon graduation from Shorewood in 2011. Matt made his Volleyball Magazine All-American debut as a second-team selection. The sophomore setter led the NCAA with11.25 assists/set and quarterbacked the offense to a team hitting percentage of .295 – the sixth best in the country. 

After just two seasons as the team’s setter, West ranks seventh in the Pepperdine record book with 2,456 career assists. With a career average of 1.32 assists/set, he stands to rank in the top-three by the end of his four years at Pepperdine. See him in action on YouTube

West was also AVCA All-American first team performers in 2013 and is a two-year member of the U.S. Boys Youth National Team.

When he is back in the Northwest, Matt assists Shoreline Community College volleyball and Space Needle volleyball camps with his parents, Raquel and Mark West, who have been volleyball coaches at SCC since 1997, and are the owners/coaches for Space Needle Volleyball Foundation, as well as active member of the Puget Sound Region and High Performance sitting volleyball.
