HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College seniors Haydn Beatty (Norman, Okla.) and Molly Corhn (Hendersonville, N.C.) have been named to the Conference Carolinas Women's Volleyball Academic all-Conference team for the first time in their careers, announced league officials Thursday.
King University led the way with six selections, as Mount Olive College earned four and Barton College and Belmont Abbey College each placed three on the all-academic team. Lees-McRae, Converse College, and Erskine College each garnered three selections.
Beatty put together a strong two-year career with the Bobcats, totaling 352 kills, 211 digs, and 148 blocks in 60 matches. The Norman, Okla. native enjoyed perhaps her best season this fall, posting career-highs in digs, blocks, and aces while tallying 171 kills.
Corhn played nearly every position on the court in her three seasons with the Bobcats, starting out as a defensive specialist before transitioning to both libero and setter this fall. The Hendersonville, N.C. native recorded career-highs of 257 assists, 219 digs and 22 aces this season, while falling 16 digs short of 500 for her career.
Lees-McRae is expected to return four letter-winners from this season, including rising juniors Angela Morse (Greenville, S.C.) and Jordan Banta Virginia Beach, Va.).
