ALL-ODAC VOLLEYBALL TEAMS ANNOUNCED
LEXINGTON, Va. -- Three members of the Washington and Lee
volleyball team were honored as the Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced
its all-conference team. Head Coach Bryan Snyder was also named the Coach
of the Year.
Junior outside hitter Emily Wolfing (Mt. Airy, Md./South
Carroll) was named the ODAC Volleyball Scholar-Athlete of the Year as
well as First Team All-ODAC. She was joined on the First Team All-ODAC
squad by sophomore setter Christine Gladysz (Palm Harbor, Fla./Berkeley
Prep) and sophomore middle blocker Susan Gaillard (Charleston, S.C./Porter-Gaud).
Wolfing has played in 114 games, compiling team-highs in
kills (432) and digs with a school-record total of 459. She is also second
on the team in service aces (48) and fourth on the team in hitting percentage
(.280). She was named the ODAC Tournament MVP last weekend. Wolfing was
also awarded the ODAC Volleyball Scholar-Athlete Award for her performance
on the court and in the classroom. A physics and math major, she claims
a 3.67 cumulative grade-point average (GPA).
Gladysz has seen action in 117 games, amassing a school-record
1,543 assists, a team-high 84 service aces, 381 digs, 88 kills and 70
blocks. She already claims the W&L career assist record with a two-year
total of 2,384. Gladysz was named to the 2003 ODAC All-Tournament team
after being named the Tournament MVP as a freshman.
Gaillard, the ODAC Rookie of the Year and a Second Team All-ODAC selection last season, has tallied 426 kills and a team-high 97 blocks. Her .432 hitting percentage leads the team and is on pace to crush the former school season record of .386.
Snyder was named the Coach of the Year for the third straight
season after leading the Generals to a new school record for wins in a
season (34-3). In his fourth season at W&L, Snyder has led the Generals
to three straight ODAC Championships while compiling a 116-26 record with
the Blue & White.
The Generals next participate in the NCAA South Regional
hosted by Trinity University of Texas on Nov. 13-15. W&L faces Averett
(31-9) in the opening round on Thursday at 5:00 pm CST.
