YORK, Pa. – The Salisbury University volleyball team picked up three postseason awards, as seniors Michelle Meehan and Julie Poston and sophomore Katie Stouffer were all named to All-Capital Athletic Conference teams, the league announced on Wednesday.
Stouffer earned her second trip on to the All-CAC first team, as she also earned a spot after her freshman season. As the only Sea Gull named to the first team, the Frederick, Maryland native led the conference with 431 kills and 3.72 kills per set. The total in kills is the highest for any SU player since former Gull Stacey Krebs hit 559 in 2007. Stouffer also ranked fourth in the league with a .275 hitting percentage.
Meehan and Poston both were honored with second-team selections, as they are both also repeat all-conference team members. Poston has been named to the second team for the past three seasons (2012-14), while Meehan was named to the first team last year.
Meehan finished the year with 517 digs, good for third in the conference, while leading the Sea Gulls. Her 54 service aces also led SU. With both of those totals, she finished her career in historic fashion, now sitting third in Salisbury's all-time career records with 1,948 digs and fourth with 240 service aces. Meehan totaled 4.46 digs per set, which ranked fourth in the CAC.
Poston earned her third All-CAC bid after totaling 277 kills on the year, ranking second on the team and tying for 10th in the CAC, while her 2.52 kills per set average finished 13th in the league. She also finished fourth for SU with 33 total blocks.
The trio helped the Sea Gulls reach their fourth-straight conference championship match, winning their final five matches of the season and taking down two higher-seeded opponents in the CAC tournament to reach the title contest.
