Inaugural class of AVCA High School Sand All-Americans!
Hawaii commit Gianna Guinasso, is a senior from Huntington Beach, Calif. As one of the top sand players in Southern California, Guinasso certainly has the accolades to back it up. She won gold medals in the AAU Best of the Beach and the AAU Junior National Volleyball Championships while winning the AAU Southern Pacific (California) District Championship. She also medaled in the AAU Pan Pacific Championships and the AAU Junior California Open (Regional). For her strong play, she was selected to represent the USA in the International Children's Games (ICG). Guinasso will head to the University of Hawaii to play for their nationally-ranked squad.
