Volleyball announces 2012 Team Captains

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Birmingham-Southern volleyball program has named its Team Captains for the upcoming 2012 season, Head Coach Judy Green announced today. Rising seniors Presley Dickson, Shelby Moore, and Lauren Reibe were voted Team Captains by their peers.

Dickson is a defensive specialist from Huntsville, Ala. She was a member of the 2011 SCAC All-Sportsmanship Team and ranked fifth in the SCAC in digs last season.

Moore is a middle blocker from Baton Rouge, La., and was a First-Team All-SCAC selection last season. She ranked fifth in the conference in hitting percentage and ninth in kills per set.

Reibe is a setter from Daphne, Ala. She was a Third-Team All-Conference selection last year and was third in the conference in assists.

"It is a privilege to be voted a Team Captain and I think our team has chosen three very deserving people to be their servant leaders for this summer and throughout the 2012 season," Green said. "Presley, Shelby and Lauren all see the big picture and are committed to the success of the program. They are tremendous role models in the classroom and on the volleyball court. Most importantly they all have accepted this role given to them by their teammates and they are committed doing all that is necessary to help the team succeed."

The Panthers open the 2012 schedule on August 31 at the Huntingdon College Invitational, and open their home slate on Sept. 22 against Southern Athletic Association rival Sewanee. For a complete schedule, click here.
