Winter Park, Fla. - Lynn University's volleyball team placed a trio of seniors on All-Sunshine State Conference teams it was announced this afternoon by the league office. Libero Lacy Redwine was named to the first team while setter Devon Woolard and middle blocker Haley Pratt were named to the second team.
Leading the conference with 5.95 digs per set, Redwine earned her third All-Conference selection of her career. The New Braunfels, Texas, native was a second team selection in 2009 and a freshman team honoree in 2007. Redwine broke her own single-season school record for digs, and by doing so, she also broke the Lynn record for career digs with 1,878. Earlier this season, Redwine recorded 35 digs at Palm Beach Atlantic, the Division II season-high for a three-set match. Redwine was also a third team academic all-district selection this year.
Quarterbacking arguably the most balanced offensive attack in the nation, Woolard earned her second all-conference honor after being named to the freshman team in 2007. A local product out of Delray Beach, Fla., Woolard owns the Lynn career record for assists (4,490) and is fourth on the all-time digs list with 1,150. The setter is just the second 1,000/1,000 player in Lynn history and is the first to record at least 1,000 assists in four straight seasons.
The Lynn record holder for career blocks with 311, Pratt earned all-conference distinction for the first time in her career. A native of Greenwood, Ind., Pratt led the team and finished fourth in the conference with a .333 hitting percentage. The six-foot-two middle blocker finished second on the squad with 89 total blocks to take seventh in the SSC. Pratt is also one of six Fighting Knights, the most in all Division II, to finish with at least 190 kills.
Barry's Julia Teixeira was selected Player of the Year. Rollins' Megan Hodges was named Freshman of the Year. Tampa's Chris Catanach was chosen Coach of the Year.
