OXFORD, Miss. – For the second straight season, middle blocker Regina Thomas was honored as an All-SEC selection by the Southeastern Conference’s coaches when the league office announced the annual awards on Monday.
Thomas was named to the All-SEC second team this season after finishing the regular season as the top hitter in the SEC, hitting at a .369 clip for the season to finish among the top hitters in the nation and is the highest ranked SEC player in the NCAA statistics.
Thomas also put down 1.10 blocks per set this year, finishing second in the SEC in that category.
“It’s a very deserving award for Regina,” said Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin. “I wish the results on the court had been a little better for the program this year to support her performances this season. She’s really meant a lot for the program over the last couple of years and has helped establish our program. She has a bright future in front of her with whatever endeavor she undertakes. She’s that kind of person.”
For the season, Thomas put down 237 kills and 120 blocks after returning to the court less than a year after a season-ending knee injury in 2010. A year ago, Thomas earned All-SEC first team honors and was named the first All-America selection in program history.
Thomas put down 857 kills and tallied 383 blocks over the course of her four-year career with the Rebels. She ranks third all-time in total blocks and also ranks third all time in block assists, putting down 303 block assists.
