ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba placed four members on the 2011 All-South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Teams as released by the league office on Thursday.  Setter Jordan Raye (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) and outside hitter Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA/Franklin Co. HS) were first team picks, while outside hitter Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) and libero Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA/Patrick Henry HS) were second team selections.

Raye, a junior, finished the regular season strong, garnering three straight league Specialist of the Week honors.  She collected two of her four triple-doubles on the season over the final five matches.  She ranks third in the SAC in assists, handing out nearly 10 per set and is fifth in hitting percentage.  Whitmer, a junior, leads the conference in kills per set at 3.74.  She has totaled 359 on the season to lead the team.  She also tops the team with 27 aces and is second on the squad with 270 digs.

Meeks, a senior, is second on the team with 315 kills and was a two-time SAC Player of the Week this season.  She ranks third on the team with 36 blocks.  Young leads the team and ranks third in the SAC at 6.3 digs per set.  Her 625 total digs this year already stands as the fourth best total in school history.  She is second on the team with 24 aces.

Willis claimed both the Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors.  She becomes a four-time all-conference selection and this season she leads the SAC by averaging 11.84 assists per set.  Wingate also claimed the Freshman of the Year in Lexi Potter and the Coach of the Year in Shelton Collier.

Potter led the league with a .332 hitting percentage and finished third with 1.02 blocks per set.  Collier led his program to its sixth-straight regular season conference championship.  Under Collier’s watch, the Bulldogs closed the regular season with active streaks of 82-consecutive SAC wins and 50-straight regular season victories intact.
