Trio Named to Academic All-Conference Team
Three King women's volleyball players were among the 38 named to the 2012 Academic All-Conference Team by Conference Carolinas on Monday.

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Conference Carolinas released the 2012 Women's Volleyball Academic All-Conference Team on Monday. Three King Lady Tornado players were represented on the list of 38 honorees including Tiffany Baines, Kelsey Griffitts, and Jessica Hammond.

Kelsey Griffitts, a junior from Bristol, Va. (John Battle H.S.), leads the Lady Tornado in total blocks (71), racking up 17 solo and 54 block assists, averaging 0.60 blocks per set. Offensively, she has 150 total kills on 388 attempts (.227) and averages 1.26 kills per set. She set a season high in kills (9) twice, once against North Greenville (9/25) and again against Carson-Newman (10/6).

Jessica Hammond (Kingsport, Tenn./Sullivan South H.S.) has played in 11 matches for the Lady Tornado and has accumulated 27 digs and 12 service aces. Tiffany Baines, a junior from Bristol, Tenn. (HIGH SCHOOL), has played in four matches while fighting injury this season.

King (16-15, 9-7 Conference Carolinas) clinched its spot in the 2012 Conference Carolinas Women's Volleyball Tournament after a 3-1 win over Limestone on Nov. 2. They now await their destination for their first round contest. They will either play Belmont Abbey College in Concord, N.C. or Queens University of Charlotte in Charlotte, N.C. depending on the outcome of Tuesday's Lees-McRae/Queens (N.C.) match. If Lees-McRae wins, King will play Queens (N.C.). If Queens (N.C.) wins, the Lady Tornado will play at Belmont Abbey. Regardless of opponent, the match will be played on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m.
