All-America volleyball honor for VWC's Guy

VIRGINIA BEACH -- A history-making career production on the volleyball court by Kala Guy has been capped by a couple of history-making post season awards.

Guy (Fishersville/Wilson Memorial) has been named an American Volleyball Coaches Association honorable mention All-American, following a first team All-South Region honor.  Both are firsts for Virginia Wesleyan's 10-year old volleyball program.

"I am very happy for Kala," said VWC head coach Andrea Hoover.  "Anyone who has seen us play knows how important Kala has been in the success of our teams each year.  She has worked hard all through her career is very deserving of the awards.  They're great for her and for our program."

Guy, a 5-foot-8 outside hitter, was a first team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honoree in 2012, marking her third straight season as a first team honoree, another first in program history. She is also a two-time All-Virginia honoree, with 2012 awards still to be announced.

Guy finished her intercollegiate career as VWC's all-time leader in kills (1,245) and total attacks (3,533), breaking previous records set by standout Jennifer Perkinson (2003-06).  She played in 400 career sets and helped the Marlins with 153 aces and 1,048 digs, the latter the fifth highest total in program history.

This season Guy set VWC's single-match record for kills with 27 against North Carolina Wesleyan College.  She recorded double-figure kills in 21 of 31 matches, hitting 20+ six times. Guy ended the season with 416 kills, the second highest total in the ODAC and a VWC single-season record.  She also recorded 310 digs, 42 aces, and 40 assists in her senior season.

Guy helped Virginia Wesleyan to a four-year record of 78-48 overall and 27-14 against ODAC foes.  The Mrlins tied the program record this season for conference wins (8-3).
