High Point, N.C. -- The North Greenville volleyball team earned its best record in school history with a 22-11 mark, and four Crusaders were honored for their role in the success.

The Crusaders placed four players on All-Conference teams as Yomi Adeyeye and Hannah Lewis earned a second team nod while Megan Gouge and Madison Pogue were voted third-team All-Conference.

Adeyeye was NGU's most dominant player on the offensive side of the net this season. The senior led the Crusaders with 396 kills this season, making her third in the conference. She also broke the North Greenville record as she recorded her 1270th kill against Emmanuel College.

Hannah Lewis put together two solid seasons at NGU as a transfer, quickly inserting herself as the Crusaders' starting libero. Lewis led North Greenville with 515 digs on the season to lead all Libero's. She also helped the Crusaders on offense with 18 aces.

Megan Gouge is another senior transfer that helped the Crusaders with her two years on campus. Gouge 214 kills this year and dished out 17 aces. She was an obstacle at the net for opposing offenses as well as she finished with 52 total blocks on the season.

Madison Pogue was the quarterback of the North Greenville offense this season, taking over as the team's setter in her first year on campus. Pogue was fourth in the conference this season as she averaged just over 10 assists per set. She finished the season with 1201 dishes overall, making her second in the league while leading the Crusaders with 36 service aces.

The Cursaders also did their job off the court as Yomi Adeyeye, Sommer Cagle, Taylor Dupes, and Megan Steading were all named to the Conference Carolinas All-Academic team.
