12_VB_GallupRachelMH

ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba was picked sixth in the 2013 SAC Volleyball Preseason Coaches’ Poll, as announced by the league office on Monday.  Seven-time defending SAC champion Wingate was picked once again to be the conference favorite, receiving the maximum number of possible first-place votes – 11 – under the poll’s voting structure. 

Catawba is in a reloading mode after the graduation of six seniors from a year ago.  Included in those were multi-time all-conference picks Jordan Raye, Kaitlyn Whitmer and Jenny Young. 

The Lady Indians return six players that saw action in over 40 sets during last season.  One the headliners returning is Rachel Gallup, a SAC All-Freshman team pick last season.  Gallup was third on the team with 191 kills and also collected 30 blocks and served 15 aces.  She is joined by four seniors; Emily Richardson (53 kills, 38 blocks), Savannah Tomlinson (48 kills, 30 blocks), Leah Ryan (25 digs, 3 aces) and Anna Logan, who has missed the last two seasons with injuries.

Other key returners include juniors Ashley Brown (25 kills, 27 blocks) and Haley Lanier (22 kills).  Two other sophomores, Abby Pennington and Kaytee Frabotta, also saw ample playing time as freshman.  Pennington collected 88 kills with 49 blocks, while Frabotta averaged just over five assists per set.
 
The 2013 SAC volleyball regular season gets underway on Thursday, Sept. 5 when Brevard hosts Virginia-Wise.
