(Nov. 15, 2006) - The Lady Bucs added a few more accolades to what has been one of the best seasons in school history Wednesday afternoon, placing four players on the 2006 Atlantic Sun All-Conference squad.

 

Senior Jennifer Sartor (Toronto, Ontario) represented the conference champs on the first team, with senior Nani Emerson (Tracy, Calif.) and juniors Kaena Apana (Waianae, Hawaii) and Callie Kiselich (Colorado Springs, Colo.) joining the ranks of the second team.

 

Sartor, who was a second team selection last season, currently ranks seventh in the league with her .311 hitting percentage, and leads the league with 465 kills.  She was named A-Sun Player of the Week for the week of October 30.

 

Emerson ranks second in the league in assists (1471) and assists per game (13.25), and twice earned A-Sun Player of the Week honors on October 9 and November 13.  Apana also achieved Player of the Week status for the week of October 23 after a record-setting performance against Lipscomb.  Apana's 31 digs in the Lady Bucs three-game sweep of the Bisons set a new conference mark for a three-game match.  Kiselich merited her inclusion on the team tying for fourth in the league in hitting percentage (.348), and averaging 3.48 kills per game, good for fifth in the conference.

 

The Lady Bucs open conference tournament play Friday afternoon at the Curb Event Center in Nashville, Tenn. against either Jacksonville or Gardner-Webb.  Match time is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
