LEXINGTON, Va. -- The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA)
announced its All-South Region team on Thursday and Washington and Lee
had one player honored on the team.
Freshman middle blocker Susan Gaillard (Charleston, S.C./Porter-Gaud)
was named to the honorable mention squad, one of 18 players tabbed to
the first team or honorable mention teams.
Gaillard also earned ODAC Rookie of the Year and Second Team All-ODAC
honors after starting all 40 matches for the Generals this season. She
led the team in hitting percentage (.385) and was second on the team in
kills (385) and blocks (106). Her hitting percentage was the second-highest
