Seniors Devon Damelio and Jenny Woolway capped their historic UC Davis volleyball careers on Saturday, and two days later the Big West recognized them — as well as juniors Victoria Lee and Katie Quinn — with all-conference accolades.

Damelio, who plays opposite, was named to the first team for the second straight season, and was joined on that squad by Lee. Woolway earned honorable mention for the fourth consecutive year and Quinn also got that honor.

Northern California native Damelio, who prepped at Rodriguez, led the Aggies in kills (367), total attempts (973) and serve receptions (603) during her senior season, while ranking second with 25 aces. She added 317 digs and 86 blocks for the year.

For her career, Damelio totaled 1,058 kills to finish sixth on the all-time school list. She ranks seventh in program history in kills per set (3.11) and fourth in points per set (3.68), and she was named to five all-tournament teams.

Lee, from Cupertino, led all Big West hitters in 2013 — and is ranked 22nd in the country — with a school-record .403 average, committing just 37 errors against 249 kills on 526 swings. She also finished second on the Aggies with 92 blocks (0.78 per set), including a team-high nine solos. Through three seasons, Lee boasts a career average of .369, putting her well on pace to break Betsy Sedlak’s school record of .336, set in 2009-11. 

Lee was an All-Big West honorable mention in 2012.

Woolway, originally from San Diego, hit two major milestones in her senior season. She surpassed Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Famer Denise Bilbaeno as the program’s all-time leader in career assists during the opening weekend, eventually finishing with 4,680 — just shy of the Big West’s all-time top 10 in that category.

In addition, Woolway’s 346 digs, second on the Aggies and tops among conference setters, lifted her final total to 1,273. That tally puts her fifth on the UCD program’s all-time list.

Also this season, Woolway finished fifth in the conference with her 10.26 assists average (1,201 total) while ranking 12th with 2.96 digs per set.

Quinn, a San Anselmo resident, picked up her first All-Big West nod despite missing four matches due to injury. She led UCD with 104 total blocks (five solos, 99 assists), ranking fifth among her conference peers with a 1.08 average. Quinn also hit 174-58-448 for a .259 average, tallied 12 aces and even passed 21-for-21 as a front-row player when teams short-served the Aggies early in the year.

With those four leading the way, UCD posted upsets of Cal (Sept. 19) and then-No. 8 Hawaii and finished 14-15 overall and 6-10 in Big West play.
