Tuesday, September 14, 2004
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- Tennessee State University volleyball player Kelly Davis was named to the All-Tournament team of the SpringHill Suites Invitational hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte over the weekend. This is the second-consecutive week the freshman has received the honor. Last week, she was recognized at the University of Memphis Invitational for her exceptional play and was the only freshman named to the All-Tournament team. The Farrell, Pa. native finished the tournament with 20 kills, 99 assists, 10 block assists, two solo blocks, one service ace, 43 digs and hit .178. She now leads team in assists with 202, averaging 6.73 per contest and third on team in kills with 48 (1.60 kpg). Davis also broke into the NCAA statistical rankings after her weekend performance. She is currently ranked No. 22 in service aces, averaging 0.91 aces per game. Head Coach Kathy Roulhac commented, "Kelly Davis is a phenomenal player! She is not even close to reaching her potential. She is a very intelligent and mature player and every match she earns trust from her teammates. With trust comes togetherness and with togetherness comes wins. "My expectation is for Kelly to be the Rookie Of The Year in the OVC." Tennessee State returns to action on Tuesday, September 14 at home in Kean Hall hosting the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky. Match time is set for 7 p.m.
