SIAC names 2007 All Conference Preseason Volleyball Team

August 31, 2007

Tucker, GA – The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is proud to announce the 2007 SIAC Preseason Volleyball All Conference Team. Heading the list are five returning SIAC All Conference team members from the 2006 season. The usual favorites Albany State University, (East Division) the seven time consecutive SIAC Tournament Champions, and Kentucky State University (West Division) reigning Western Division Champion, were chosen to finish atop the East and West Divisions of the SIAC.

Amongst those named to the SIAC Preseason All Conference Team are five returning players. That list includes Jennifer Holman of Clark Atlanta University, Bianca Burton of Stillman College, Brittany Marion of Miles College, Chandesha Billings and Sheriann Norris both of Fort Valley State University. Chandesha Billings, will try to dominate once again as she ranked 2nd in the conference last year in kills averaging 4.39 kills per game and led her team with 96 serving aces last year. Kentucky State University and Miles College each had 2 players named to the team. Benedict College, Paine College and Stillman College wrap up the schools with players named to the team.

Leading the pack once again is Albany State who will try to win their 8th consecutive SIAC Conference Tournament Title (7th under Coach Robert Skinner) but they have a young squad. Kentucky State University will look to repeat as the Western Division Champion in 2007. With a new coach and a new attitude Kentucky State will look to challenge for the SIAC Tournament Championship.
