FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – William Peace volleyball's junior middle blocker, Megan Mansfield, was named as a USA South, second team all-conference selection today.
The Pitt Community College transfer led the Pacers' attack in what proved to be a historic year for the William Peace volleyball program. She set the tone from the opening weekend being selected to Averett University's Cougar Classic all-tournament team and never looked back helping lead the team to a school record 22 regular season wins.
She closed out the regular season with 467 points, which is the fourth highest mark in the conference, and her four points per set is good four sixth highest. She finished with 3.35 kills per set, the sixth best mark in the conference and also hit .242, good for eighth best in the league. Her hitting percentage is even more impressive considering the average number of attempts for the seven girls in front of her was 704 whereas Mansfield took 944 swings this year.
Head coach Kevin Daniels spoke about today's announcement.
"I'm excited for her. It's a big achievement for her and the program," said head coach Kevin Daniels. "She's the kid that we can put anywhere, who is a great athlete, and that can do pretty much anything on the court…She has done a lot for us this year."
Mansfield and the rest of her Pacers' teammates will be taking the court Friday, September 8 at 7:00 p.m. as they face Piedmont College in the first round of the USA South conference tournament.
