The Southeast Conference released its all-conference volleyball teams on Wednesday and Mt. Pleasant was well represented on the team.

The Panthers had eight selections on the list, one each on the first and second teams and six honorable mentions.

The lone Panther first-teamer was senior hitter Kalynn Batey. Batey arose as one of the best outside hitters in the area this season, tallying 207 kills this year for third best in the conference.

Senior setter Ashlee Menke, who is no stranger to the All-SEC list, was named to the second team as the setter. Menke was second in assists this year with 400. She also led Mt. Pleasant with 45 aces, which was fourth in the conference.

Six Panthers were named to the honorable mention list, which was the most of any team. Seniors Dani Broeker and Jackie Fraise, juniors Sadie Carrasco, Anni Liechty and Mary West, and sophomore Maggie Cristoforo were all named.

Mt. Pleasant also had 10 players named to the All-Academic list. That tied Fairfield and Ft. Madison as tops in the conference.
