After leading Utah to a 34-17 record, including seven wins against top-25 teams, head coach Amy Hogue was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year on Wednesday. Hogue is in her eighth season with the Utes and is the first Utah coach to receive the honor since the university joined the conference.

“On behalf of my entire coaching staff, I am thrilled about the honor we have received,” Hogue said in a university release. “The [Pac-12 Coach of the Year] award may have my name on it, but I know that it was a team effort and I could not have gotten this without the support of my staff. I have surrounded myself with amazing people that also happen to be great coaches, and I am truly blessed.”

Adding to the accolades were senior Kate Dickman and freshman Katie Donovan, who were both named first team All-Pac-12 selections. Teammate Hannah Flippen was named to the second team, while Heather Bowen, Kristen Stewart and Miranda Viramontes were honorable mention selections.

Additionally, Flippen and Shelby Pacheco were named to the All-Pac-12 defensive team, while Anissa Urtez, Dickman and Stewart were named to the honorable mention list.

“What a great honor for this program to have eight different players recognized with an award by the Pac-12,” sHogue said in the release. “Kate, Katie and Hannah have led us the entire year, so having them be named three of the top 30 players in the conference is exciting.”
