CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Three members of the Presbyterian College volleyball team were honored by the Big South Conference as a part of its annual awards announcement on Wednesday afternoon. Junior S/RS Erin Cooke was selected to the All-Big South Second Team, freshman libero Anna Hewitt was named to the All-Freshman Team and junior outside hitter Trinity Williams earned a spot on the All-Academic Team.
Cooke was selected to the All-Big South Second Team for the second consecutive season. The Davidson, N.C., native led Presbyterian and ranked fourth in the league in kills this season with 166. She also posted a team-best 2.6 kills/set this spring, and finished second on the Blue Hose in assists (233), assists/set (3.7), digs (146) and total blocks (45). The junior collected a team-high 10 double-doubles, and also notched her sixth career triple-double, with 11 kills, 22 assists and 21 digs on March 5 against UNC Asheville.
A two-time Big South Freshman of the Week honoree this spring, Hewitt became the third Blue Hose in the last four seasons to earn a spot on the league’s All-Freshman Team. A native of Alvaton, Ky., Hewitt led the Big South in digs with 296, and finished second in the league in digs/set at 4.7. The freshman totaled double-digit digs in 14 of PC’s 16 contests, and had a stretch of nine straight matches of 20 or more digs.
Williams was selected to the All-Academic Team for the second straight season. The Anderson, S.C., native started all eight matches for Presbyterian this season and recorded five double-doubles before suffering a season-ending injury. In the classroom, Williams boasts a 3.67 GPA as a Political Science major and an English/Pre-Law double minor, and is on track to graduate in just three years this May. The junior is also a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and started a chapter of the NAACP at PC this past year.
