Very nice.......love our VolleyBears!!!



Conway – PrepVolleyball.com released its annual recruiting class rankings on Thursday, and for the second-straight year the Central Arkansas Sugar Bears were included among the nation's top classes, earning Honorable Mentions status.

"I'm very proud of our program receiving the Honorable Mention ranking two years in a row," said UCA head coach Jeni Jones Chatman. "Recruiting is your lifeline to success in college athletics. My staff and our incredible student-athletes are the reason for this recognition. My staff works countless hours watching video, talking with coaches and recruits, doing in-person evaluations, and with on-campus visits to seek out those that will be great ambassadors of UCA and our volleyball programs."

Chatman also credited her current players, saying, "Our current players truly invest in this process during our on-campus visits. We feel that they are the best ambassadors for our program, because they are the ones that are going through all the workouts, practices, road trips, and matches on a weekly, and sometimes daily, basis. Their experience in those moments is challenging, exciting, and purposeful. The rapport we develop with our players is not just player/coach, it goes well beyond that. It is us teaching them life lessons, and them teaching us as well. The goofy, silly moments, the adrenaline rush of wins, and the difficult moments of loss and setback all combine to create these experiences and, at the end of a four or five year career, ends with them leaving UCA with an incredible degree that has set them up to be successful in all they choose to pursue."

Central Arkansas' 2017 class, which is the only one in the Southland Conference to be included on PrepVolleyball's list, will contribute in all phases of the game. The Sugar Bears will welcome middle blocker/right side Mallory Carty (Germantown, Tenn.), defensive specialist Emily Doss (Springdale, Ark.), middle blocker Amari Mitchell (Arlington, Texas), middle blocker Ravin Rhodes (Compton, Calif.), and setter Bailey Waddington (San Angelo, Texas) for the 2017 season. The group will join All-Southland Conference honorees Megan Nash (First Team), Samantha Anderson (Honorable Mention), and Haley Tippett (Honorable Mention) as the Sugar Bears look to build on an SLC Tournament Semifinals appearance.

"I am one of the most fortunate people on the planet," said Chatman. "I get to do this every day and I get to do it with incredible people, athletes, and administrators, and I get to do it for a university that values all the things we value as a program. The tremendous faculty and staff, as well as our gorgeous campus, make UCA a place where prospective student-athletes want to be."

Chatman and the Sugar Bears will open the 2017 season with a pair of matches in Buffalo, New York on August 25th. UCA will take on Canisius at 11:00 AM CT before facing off with Hampton at 3:00 PM CT.

BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo volleyball team suffered their first defeat of the season on Saturday afternoon as the Bulls fell 3-0 to Central Arkansas in the finale of the Buffalo Invite at Alumni Arena. UB finished the weekend 2-1, while UCA claimed the tournament title with a perfect 3-0 record.

The Sugar Bears took the match 25-23, 25-20, 25-23 as they outhit Buffalo .212 to .101. Central Arkansas scored the first six points of the match, forcing the Bulls to play catch up all set. A late kill from freshman Andrea Mitrovic tied the set up at 22-22, but UCA recorded three of the final four points to take it.

The Bulls scored the first four points of the second set and continued to lead 10-6 before UCA tied it up at 12-12. The Bulls then scored two straight points to take a 14-12 lead, but Central Arkansas scored eight straight points to take the 20-14 lead. UB pulled back within three twice, but ultimately fell 25-20 in the set.

The Sugar Bears then raced out to an 11-4 start in the third set, but the Bulls were able to respond as they went on an 11-3 run to take a 15-14 lead following back-to-back service aces from freshman Vanessa Marinelli, who came off the bench to set the end of the second and nearly all of the third.

UB increased its lead to 18-15, but four straight UCA points gave it the lead back. UB was able to fight off two match points, but lost the final set 25-23.

Sophomore Polina Prokudina had 12 kills, while Mitrovic added 11. Junior Megan Wernette finished with five kills and no errors on eight attacks as she hit .625. Sophomore Scout McLerran had 21 assists, while Marinelli had eight off the bench, as well as two aces and two blocks.
