Rebels Close Out 2011 Season With Alabama On Friday Fans Can Enter To Win A Flat Screen TV And Other Prizes
Nov. 23, 2011
OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss volleyball team closes out the 2011 season on Friday with its final contest of the season against the Alabama Crimson Tide at 7 p.m. at the Gillom Sports Center and admission is free.
A night of fun is planned for all in attendance as the Rebel fans get to send off a pair of the most accomplished seniors in program history and can win prizes on "Black Friday" that include a 32" flat screen television and other items.
"We finish up the season this Friday with a match against our travel partner and hope to send off our seniors with one more victory," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin. "They've meant a lot to our program over the years and have done a great job of keeping our team focused, practicing hard and playing hard despite a tough season. We're very proud of them."
Senior middle blocker Regina Thomas continues to be a driving force behind the Rebel offense as the top hitter from the Southeastern Conference in the NCAA statistics at .378 for the season. She's second in the SEC in blocks with 1.09 blocks per set this season, helping lead Ole Miss with her presence at the net.
Joining Thomas on the attack is junior right side hitter Allegra Wells, who is putting down a team-leading 277 kills and averaging 2.64 kills per set this season. Right on her heels in offensive production is sophomore outside hitter Kara Morgan with 254 kills and 2.42 kills per set.
Defensively on the back row, it's been senior Morgan Springer with 3.86 digs per set, the fourth best average in the SEC this season. She has come up with 405 digs to date this season and is the all-time digs leader at Ole Miss with 1,606 career digs.
Ole Miss looks to split the season series with the Crimson Tide who claimed the first meeting between the two teams back in September in Tuscaloosa. The Rebels got double-digit kills from three players in that outing, led by 13 kills from Thomas. Wells put down 11 kills and Courtney Cunningham added 10 kills to round out the attack for Ole Miss.
