LeTourneau University


The LeTourneau University volleyball team was picked to finish fourth in the 2016 ASC Volleyball East Division in a preseason poll released on Thursday. The poll comes as a result of votes by league’s head coaches and sports information directors.

UT Dallas was the preseason favorite in the ASC East Division after receiving 18 out of a possible 20 first-place team votes. Behind the Comets were UT Tyler, followed by East Texas Baptist and the YellowJackets to round out the poll. In the West Division, Mary Hardin-Baylor is the preseason favorite after picking up 15 of the 20 first-place votes. Behind UMHB were Hardin-Simmons, Hardin-Simmons, Concordia, McMurry, Sul Ross State and Howard Payne.

In addition to the preseason poll, each team was able to nominate a pair of players to the Preseason Players to Watch List. On the list of Players to Watch from LeTourneau were seniors Dolores Henson (Sr., Outside Hitter, Twin Falls, Idaho) and Skylar Horan (Sr., Middle Blocker/Right-Side Hitter, Fort Worth, Texas).

Regular season play will begin Thursday, September 1. The ASC Championship is November 3-5, and the West Division No. 1 seed is the host site. An automatic berth into the NCAA Division III Volleyball Championship will be on the line.
