ODAC Announces Volleyball All-ODAC Teams

FOREST, Va. -- The Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced its 2010 volleyball postseason awards on Friday afternoon and Washington and Lee had four players honored in addition to capturing a pair of individual awards.

First-year outside hitter M.A. Boles (Houston, Texas/St. John's) highlighted the award winners for W&L as she took home ODAC Rookie of the Year Honors as well as being a First Team All-ODAC Selection.

She was joined on the first team by junior middle blocker Lindsey Dee (Tallahassee, Fla./Maclay School) and sophomore libero Cameron Hill (Tampa, Fla./H.B. Plant), while senior middle blocker Louise Brooks (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) was named the to the All-ODAC Second Team.
 
Head Coach Bryan Snyder, who earlier this season recorded his 300th win as coach of the Generals, also earned his seventh ODAC Coach of the Year award in leading W&L to a 25-5 overall record and a 9-1 mark in league play.
 
Boles became the first General to earn Rookie of the Year laurels since Laura Maurer '09 did it following the 2005 season. Boles currently leads the ODAC in kills (346) and service aces (48), and has added 293 digs and 35 blocks while playing in 105 of W&L's 109 sets this fall.
 
Hill earned postseason recognition for the second time in as many years after being an Honorable Mention All-ODAC selection last season. She is currently second in the conference with 438 digs and is ranked fourth with 42 service aces. She has played a team-high 107 sets on the season.
 
Dee earned all-conference recognition for the first time and has totaled 211 kills, 100 blocks and 52 digs in 105 sets this season. Her 100 blocks are good for second in the ODAC, as are her 77 block assists.
 
Brooks, who was a First Team All-ODAC selection a year ago, earned second team laurels after recording 189 kills with a .333 hitting percentage that is good for second in the league. She has added 76 digs and 63 blocks in 104 sets and is ranked among the Top 10 at W&L in career blocks (237) and hitting percentage (.285).
 
Randolph-Macon's Raena Winton earned ODAC Player of the Year honors for the second-consecutive year, while Elisa Troyer of Eastern Mennonite was tabbed the ODAC/Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete.
