BC Tornados Volleyball Team Picked Sixth In Preseason


August 26, 2019

The Brevard College Tornados volleyball team was selected sixth in the annual USA South Conference volleyball preseason poll on Thursday morning.

The Covenant College Scots took the first place spot in the west division as the Scots vie for a fifth-straight west division title.

The Scots received five first-place votes and tallied 46 total points in the poll.

Huntingdon College and Maryville College were neck-and-neck for the second and third place in this year’s edition of the poll.

The Hawks of Huntingdon garnered two first-place votes to Maryville’s one, and the Hawks edged the Maryville Scots with 42 points to the Scots’ 38.

Piedmont College (4th, 30) and LaGrange College (5th, 28) were voted ahead of the Tornados, whose sixth-place finish was accomplished through receiving 16 total points.

Berea College (7th, 13) and Agnes Scott College (8th, 11) rounded out the west division poll.

The Tornados embark on an ambitious 2019 campaign by returning seven players from last year’s squad as well as adding nine freshman newcomers to the team.

Among this year’s returners are junior Hannah Gordon and sophomores Sydney Fox and Mariana Rodriguez.

Gordon served as the team’s setter last season, tallying a team-best 526 assists.

Fox’s 174 kills led all Tornados, while Rodriguez held the team lead in digs with 341.

Head coach Anna Grant enters her fifth season at the helm of Tornados volleyball.

Assistant coach Bailey Lowden enters her second season on the Tornado coaching staff, while assistant athletic director/SWA Stephanie Johnson will also serve as an assistant coach on the 2019 team.
