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.
