Three Owls Named All-Conference USA

Nov. 23, 2010

Irving, Texas - Three Rice volleyball players have been named All-Conference USA as announced by the league office. For the third consecutive year, Tracey Lam has been voted the Libéro of the Year, marking just the second time in league history an individual has won the award three times. Cincinnati's Trish Ladusaw did so from 2000-02. Lam ranks fourth in the nation in digs per set with an average of 5.75 and has been named to back-to-back all-conference first teams. The senior sports a school record 2,368 career digs, a figure that ranks second best in C-USA annals.

Earning All-C-USA second team merits for the Owls were junior Ashleigh McCord and sophomore Nancy Cole. McCord, a first team selection last year, probably would have been on the first team for 2010 had season not been shortened by an injury. She leads Rice with 4.10 kills per set and sports a .288 hitting percentage. McCord, from Wylie, Texas, had double-digit kills in every match in which she competed.

Cole, from Pasadena, Texas, is having a break out season as she leads Rice with 359 kills and in blocks with 100. She also leads the Owls with 19 matches in double-digit kills.

The Owls conclude the season this Saturday when they host Houston at 7 p.m. inside Tudor Fieldhouse.
