HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College senior
middle blocker Whitney Justice (Connelly Springs, N.C.) has been
named the Conference Carolinas Women's Volleyball Scholar Athlete,
announced league officials Wednesday.
Justice has been an integral part of Lees-McRae's success over
the last four seasons, garnering Conference Carolinas Player of the
Year honors in each of the last two years and leading the Bobcats
to three conference titles in that span. The 6-0 middle blocker
capped her career with a match-high 12 kills against Wingate
University in the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional, concluding
her tenure at Lees-McRae with 1,347 kills.
The 2009 AVCA All-American has led the Bobcats to three
conference titles during her four-year career, leading the league
in hitting percentage in each of the last two seasons. Justice
posted an outstanding season this fall in conference play,
recording a blistering .450 hitting percentage against league
opponents to lead the Bobcats to a perfect 18-0 mark in Conference
Carolinas action, capping the program's 12th league title in the
last 13 years.
During her career, Justice garnered all-conference first team
honors twice, all-region recognition in back-to-back seasons,
conference tournament MVP honors twice, as well as a spot on the
2009 AVCA All-America team.
Lees-McRae ended their season with a 25-8 record, including a
perfect 18-0 mark in conference play en route to the program's 12th
league title in the past 13 years. The Bobcats are expected to
return eight letter-winners, including first team all-conference
selections Megan Epperson (St. John, Ind.) and Megan Mitchell
