Bully Named to SAC Women's Basketball Preseason Team


ROCK HILL, SC -- The South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball coaches have voted Wingate No. 1 in the league’s preseason poll, predicting the Bulldogs to repeat as conference champions in 2012-13 as announced by the league office.  Catawba, runner-up to Wingate last year were fifth in the poll. 

Wingate garnered seven of the first-place votes.  Lenoir-Rhyne, Newberry and Catawba received the other first-place votes.

Catawba sophomore forward Chloe Bully, a member of the 2011-12 SAC All-Freshman Team, earned a spot on the preseason first team all-conference squad.  Bully averaged 13.5 points per game and led the conference by shooting 38.2-percent on three-pointers last season.  She connected on a school-record 73 three-pointers a year ago.

The Lady Indians return just five players from last season.
