Shaw Lady Bears clinch CIAA East Volleyball Title

October 18, 2001

Bowie, MD - The Shaw University Lady Bears Volleyball Team swept CIAA Eastern Division rival Bowie State 3-0 and clinched their third straight CIAA Eastern Division title. Winning each game 30-16, 30-27, 30-13, the Lady Bears extended their regular season divisional match win streak to 30.

The Lady Bears were led by junior LaTonelius Thomas (Alexander, AL) with 13 kills, one ace, four digs and two solo blocks and CIAA Player of the Year Candidate Stacy Williams (SR/Maple Heights, OH) with 10 kills, one ace, nine digs and two solo blocks. Freshman setter Kalia Quarles (Cleveland, OH) continued her pace for Rookie of the Year honors with 38 assists and two kills, while junior Britanya Riley (Milton, FL) added 10 kills.

Since the CIAA changed to an East and West Divisional format five years ago, the Lady Bears are 48-2 in Eastern Division play. The two defeats came by the hands of Bowie State ('97) and VA. Union ('98).

The Lady Bears will close out the regular season at home with matches against Mt. Olive College (October 24) and cross town rival St. Augustine's College (October 31).
