SAC Coaches Pick Volleyball Third in Pre-Season Poll

ROCK HILL, SC -- Defending co-champion Wingate University, which has made three trips to the NCAA Tournament in the last four years, is picked to win the 2007 South Atlantic Conference volleyball title, according to a vote of the league's eight head coaches.  Catawba was picked third behind the 2006 co-champions.

Catawba, which garnered a first place vote, returns five starts and 10 letter-winners from a year ago.  The ladies were third in the league, posting a 19-11 record.  Catawba had a win over both league co-champs, Wingate and Lenoir-Rhyne. 

The Lady Indians placed three players on the preseason All-Conference team. Melissa Griffith and Melissa Powers were named to the first team, while Andi Henderson was named to the second team.  Powers led the league in hitting percentage and kills per game last year en route to first-team All-Conference honors.  Griffith was second in the league in kills per game, while Henderson was second in assists.

Wingate received five first-place votes and 60 total points.  Lenoir-Rhyne, which has shared the conference title in two of the past three seasons, was picked to finish second and had one first-place vote.
