Laurinburg, NC – The Converse Volleyball team finished their inaugural season in the CVAC Conference with a semi-final appearance, several post-season awards and a highly successful record of 22-15.
The All-Stars began the CVAC Tournament seeded 4th and knocked off the 5th seed Belmont Abbey in four sets 3-1 (30-24, 24-30, 30-26 and 30-23) to advance to the semi-final against NCAA bound Mount Olive. The All-Stars would rally from one set down to tie the match up but would eventually succumb in four sets and end their highly respected first season in the CVAC Conference.
