AVCA Honors Four From Volleyball in Post-Season Awards
LEXINGTON, KY -- Four members of the Catawba volleyball team have earned post-season honors from the American Volleyball Coaches Association. Juniors Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA), Jordan Raye (Boonville, NC) and Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA) were named to the All-Southeast Region team, while senior Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC) claimed honorable mention all-region honors.
Hitters Whitmer and Meeks finished one-two in kills this season with both joining the 1,000-career kill club during the season. Whitmer posted 416 kills (3.62 avg,), while Meeks collected 388 (3.3) and hit at 27%. Meeks was twice named the league Player of the Week, including after her career-high 28 kill performance in a win at Tusculum.
Young, the libero, set three school records. She set the single-match dig record with 55 in a win over Tusculum and finished with 769 on the season with a 6.5 average which were both new marks. Raye, a setter, had five triple-doubles on the season and claimed the last three SAC Specialist of the Week awards.
