Barry freshman middle blocker Laine Cielena was named to the Palm Beach Atlantic Hyatt Place Sunshine Classic All-Tournament Team following her two-day performance in West Palm Beach.

Cielena had a team-high 40 kills and attacked at a .333 percentage as the Buccaneers went 2-2, knocking off the No. 18-ranked team in the country. Cielena, a native of Krimuldas Novads, Latvia, also racked up 17 blocks, including two solos.

She was one of seven players named to the all-tournament team.
