Gray leads the conference in kills and in second in the nation with 5.22 per set while additionally contributing 2.37 digs per set. She was named the 2015 West Coast Conference Player of the Year (her second-straight honor), an AVCA National Player of the Week as well as the WCC Player of the Week five times this season.

Boswell leads the WCC in blocks per set, averaging 1.40. She contributes a team-high .378 hitting percentage and has a team-high 153 blocks. Boswell was named the WCC Defensive Player of the Year and collected a WCC Player of the Week accolade earlier this season.
