AVCA ALL-REGION TEAMS

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Three members of the Stevenson University women's volleyball team were named to the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-Region Team for the Mid-Atlantic region on Thursday.  Junior Katie Leftridge was named All-Region for the second straight season, while senior Moriah Savage and junior Victoria Prokic were Honorable Mention selections.

Leftridge was named All-Region for the second year in a row, and last week was named MAC Commonwealth First Team for the second straight season.  A three-time MAC Commonwealth Player of the Week selection and a one-time AVCA Division III Player of the Week, Leftridge leads the Mustangs in kills (390) and is second in digs (371) while hitting .222.  She has reached double figures in kills 23 times on the season and posted a dozen double-doubles.

Savage was named All-Region for the third time in her career.  A MAC Commonwealth First Team choice, Savage recently recorded her 1,000th career kill and has recorded 297 kills this season while hitting .236 and checks in third on the team with 72 total blocks.  Savage has posted double-digit kills on 13 occasions.

Prokic was honored by the AVCA for the first time.  A conference Second Team selection, Prokic leads the Mustangs and the MAC Commonwealth with 109 total blocks while ranking 27th in Division III in total blocks.  She has also racked up 200 kills and leads the Mustangs with a .294 hitting percentage.

Stevenson is back in action Friday when it faces Hunter in the first round of the NCAA Championship in Ithaca, N.Y.  The Mustangs are making their eighth straight NCAA appearance.
