Congrats, Sandy Owls!Tuesday, Apr 27, 2021
Over the weekend, the “Sandy Owls” beach volleyball team captured its first-ever conference title! The team defeated the top-seeded Georgia State Panthers 3-1 to win the 2021 CCSA (Coastal Collegiate Sports Association) Beach Volleyball Blue Bracket Championship. It was the team’s 20th win of the season. Coach Capri Grotowski also celebrated her 100th career victory this season.
Savannah Pesante and Maylin Bouffard received Pair of the Tournament honors. The pairs of Erica Brok and Mackenzie Morris, and Kenley Adams and Ellie Austin joined Savannah and Maylin on the All-Tournament Team. Erika and Mackenzie also were named to the All-Conference Team.
I am so proud of the beach volleyball team’s success. The Sandy Owls ended the season ranked No. 12 nationally and have finished in the Top 20 every year since 2017. Next, the team hopes to earn a spot in the NCAA Beach Volleyball Championship.
Congratulations, Sandy Owls, on a truly impressive season!
