After finishing a successful season, the Centre women’s volleyball team had five of its players recognized on the SAA (Southern Athletic Association) All-Conference team, as voted by the leagues head coaches.  This is the most the team has ever place on an All-Conference team in program history.

Centre had one player named to the All-Conference First Team in sophomore middle hitter Suzanne Asbury (Louisville, KY).  Asbury garnered this award after leading the conference in total blocks with 137, 36 more than the next highest at 101.  The sophomore also finished in the top 10 of the conference for hitting efficiency at .265

Earning Honorable Mention All-Conference honors were senior Libero Jenna Foushee (Louisville, KY), junior outside hitter Catherine Janszen (Cincinnati, OH), junior middle hitter Lydia Prevost (Knoxville, TN), and freshman outside hitter Beth Cecil (Bardstown, KY).

Foushee, who was also named to the All-Tournament Team, was third in the conference in total digs with 442 and considered one of the best serve receivers in the conference.

After missing last year due to knee surgery Janszen came back fired up and ready to play.  She finished the season ninth overall in the conference for total digs with 359, and was in the top 15 for both total kills (226) and total aces (29).

The high flying Prevost earned her Honorable Mention selection by finishing the season fourth in total blocks with 87 as well as finishing ranked number 11 for hitting percentage at .229 and in the top 25 for total kills at 188.

The lone freshman to make the All-Conference team for Centre was Cecil.  Cecil displayed uncanny athleticism that impressed the league coaches, of course her 172 kills and .204 hitting efficiency certainly helped her cause.

Head coach James Neyhouse stated, “This is certainly good news for our program right now and the future.  We will lose one great senior (Jenna Foushee), but we will return 14 other great players, four of which will be returning All-Conference selections.  Yes, i think the future is looks very bright for us.”
