VIENNA, W.Va. (Dec. 2, 2013) – The Great Midwest Athletic Conference presented its 2013 Women's Volleyball honors and awards on Nov. 21 throughout the day during the quarterfinal round of the G-MAC Volleyball Championships. During each of the four matches on Nov. 21, the All-Conference selections were revealed with special individual awards being presented prior to the games.
The coaches selected the All-Conference First team, Second team, and Honorable Mention leading up to this weekend's Volleyball Championships in Owensboro, Ky., on the campus of Kentucky Wesleyan College.
Ohio Valley University is proud to announce the inclusion of four Fighting Scots to the all-conference teams. Imani Ward, a freshman from Parkersburg, W.Va. was named to the G-MAC All-Conference Second Team. Ward is fourth in the conference in hitting percentage and sixth in the conference in kills.
“It is great to have Imani selected to the second team all-conference,” exclaims Coach Jacoby. “She has been in the top five in hitting percentage all season.”
Alyx Henry, a freshman from Norwalk, Ca. was named to the G-MAC All-Conference Honorable Mention team. Henry is third in the conference in kills and third in the conference in service aces.
Megan Morrison, a freshman from Vienna, W.Va. was named to the G-MAC All-Conference Honorable Mention team. Morrison is fifth in the conference in digs.
Amanda Weatherwax, a sophomore from Warsaw, Ohio was named to the G-MAC All-Conference Honorable Mention team. Weatherwax is third in the conference in service aces.
“Morrison, Henry, and Weatherwax have been in the top 10 in the G-MAC in several different categories throughout the season,” says Jacoby. “It’s no surprise they have been selected to all conference. Each of these ladies has been a leader on our team.”
This Fighting Scots volleyball team recorded the best record OVU has seen since becoming a member of the NCAA Division II. With no seniors on the team and so many successful freshmen added
to an already promising roster, OVU looks to become even more competitive in seasons to come. “I want to thank the whole team for helping to make OVU competitive in the G-MAC,” says Jacoby. “The success of this season came from each player stepping up and raising the bar.”
