Anchorage’s Ashton Jessee has cemented herself among the greatest blockers in Pac West Conference history.

The University of Hawaii Hilo senior has racked up 342 career total blocks to move into an eighth-place tie on the Pac West’s all-time list.

Jessee has a great chance to reach the top 5, needing just 12 more blocks to reach the fourth spot at 354.

The 6-foot-3 middle blocker ranks top-10 in Pac West history in three categories – all from the 2018 season.

During a two-match stretch in October of that year she had 13 blocks against Fresno Pacific and 11 two days later against Dominican. Her 13-block performance is tied for No. 4 in conference history.

Jessee, of South High fame, paced the Pac West in 2018 with a league-leading 136 blocks, which is tied for ninth most in a Pac West single season. Her 1.31 blocks per set average ranks No. 9.

She led the conference last year with 75 block assists, 81 total blocks and a 1.23 blocks per set average.

Jessee has slammed 541 kills for her career, which is among the leaders among Alaskans playing at the college level.

Her career high of 16 kills was set in 2017.

This weekend, she collected 11 kills on 15 attempts in a sweep over Montana State Billings and leads the Pac West with a .438 hitting percentage. Oddly enough, she didn’t have a single block for only the second time in 66 sets over the past two seasons.

Jessee looks to get back to the block party this weekend as Pac West play gets started.
