Volleyball Captures 10th Place at SCAC Tournament

The volleyball team, seeded 11th at the 2011 SCAC Tournament, improved their position by finishing 10th overall after going 1-2 in three matches on the campus of Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. the past weekend.

The Petrels lost their first match on Friday to the host Majors (L, 3-0) but rallied to win a 5-set thriller over Centre College in the nightcap (W, 3-2) to advance to the 9th/10th place game. Hendrix College bested Oglethorpe (L-3-1) in the Saturday finale to put the finishing touches on the 2011 season.

The Petrels finish the season with a 10-24 overall record, but with a roster that included no seniors and a bevy of young talent, will look to make some noise in the Southern Athletic Association next fall. Evidence of Oglethorpe's improvement is the fact that the women won 9 of their last 20 matches in 2011, showing unlimited promise for what 2012 may bring.
