LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – In October, senior Desiree Frey became the first Ladies volleyball player to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs for a career. In a vote by the conference volleyball coaches released this week, Frey became Centenary’s first volleyball non-Freshman Team All-Conference honoree.

“Desiree could not be more deserving of her conference honors,” said head coach Caroline Carlton. “She has worked hard both on and off the court to be successful and has accomplished so much in her time at Centenary. Although I have only been at Centenary for a small part of her career, I am thankful for what she has done for our program, and I am thrilled I had the chance to coach her.”

Frey received Second Team All-Conference accolades after leading the SCAC in the regular season in both total kills (389, 42nd in the nation) and kills per set (3.32, 117th in the nation). She reached 1,000 kills in the first set at #2 Colorado College October 14 and tallied her 1,000 dig in the third set against Louisiana College in the Gold Dome October 18.

On the first day of the Centenary Halloween Tournament October 27, Frey breached the 1,100 mark in both kills and digs.

While Frey is the first to be named to an All-Conference volleyball team, Lauren Fielding in 2006 and Lindsay Bekelja in 2004 made the Mid-Continent All-Freshman squads, while Kim Bolin was named Third Team Trans American Athletic Conference (TAAC, now the Atlantic Sun) in 1998

Centenary, the sixth seed in the upcoming SCAC Tournament, returns to action Friday afternoon, November 3, against third-seeded Southwestern. First serve against the #2 Pirates is set for 1 p.m. in Kerrville, Texas.
