Four Lions earn volleyball honors


The A&M-Commerce volleyball team saw four players earn All-LSC honors after a 22-8 mark and 9-7 conference record. Jordan Neal and Amy Davault earned First Team All-LSC honors; Kayla Bond and Ciara Holmes were both Honorable Mention and All-Academic selections.

In addition to the first team honor Neal was named Setter of the Year after leading the LSC in total assists (1,341) and assists per set (11.14). Neal averaged a half assist more than any other setter in the LSC, becoming the program's al-time assist leader earlier this year. A three-time second team All-LSC performer prior to this season, Neal ranks third among active players for career assists with 4,385.

Davault received Newcomer of the Year, along with first team honors, after leading the Lions in kills (392) and kills per set (3.41). The Houston native was also second on the team in digs (397) and digs per set (3.45). The 3.41 average was good enough to rank Davault third in the LSC in kills per set.  

Bond earned LSC Honorable mention after leading the Lions in hitting percentage (.320) and blocks (96). Bond was also second on the team in service aces with 29 on the season. The Denton native was also an All-Academic selection with her work in the classroom. Bond is a Sports and Recreation Management major at A&M-Commerce.

Ciara Holmes was also a LSC Honorable mention and All-Academic selection. Holmes posted 268 kills, 2.41 kills per set and a .210 hitting percentage. Holmes was second in the team in blocks with 61 on the season. The senior is majoring in Biological Science.

The Lions start postseason play on Thursday in Canyon versus Tarleton State in the First Round of the LSC Tournament. The winner of the game plays the winner of the Eastern New Mexico versus West Texas A&M in the semifinals on Friday.
