ADRIAN, Mich. -- The men's volleyball had four selections to this year's All-Conference Team under head coach Jordan Timmerman. The team won the league championship with a 9-1 record and will compete at nationals in April.
Here is the award and a quote about each player from coach Timmerman:
Jordan Zickafoose: Most Outstanding Player
"I'm so proud of the way he has led this team over the past two seasons. He is a great athlete, and a great competitor, and I'm glad the other teams in the conference chose him. When the game is on the line, he always seems to take his game to the next level."
Craig Lantz: Defensive Player of the Year
"Craig proved time and time again that he was the best libero in the conference. His intensity, and drive is second to none. His leadership and his emotion really push this team to be their best. I have never coached a defensive player with the instincts and ability that Craig has. Sometimes he makes a play out there, and I have to sit down and think, Did he really just do that?"
Lance Fulling: All-Conference Honorable Mention
"Lance deserved to be recognized as All-Conference. As a freshmen, he has steadily improved this year, and without him we probably would not have been as successful as we have been. He is a big, fun-loving guy with a great sense of humor and the future looks bright for him."
Spencer Simmons: All-Conference Honorable Mention
"Spencer has improved so much in the two years he has been a part of our team. He is an incredible athlete, and a great person. His 43" vertical leap grabs a lot of people's attention when we are playing, and even I am still amazed at his jumping ability. This year he is playing back row as well as front row, and has become a very well-rounded player."
