Two former Iredell County high school volleyball standouts were among five members of the Catawba Valley Community College program to be recognized by Region 10 for their performance this season.
Macy Pope, a setter from West Iredell, was named first-team All-Region. Meredith Patterson, an outside hitter from North Iredell, was selected All-Region second team.
A sophomore, Pope finished the regular season with 459 assists, which are the ninth-most in the conference. She recently surpassed the 1,000 assist mark for her career, making her just the fourth Red Hawk to eclipse that milestone.
In 22 matches this season, Patterson recorded 155 kills, 2.31 kills per set, 181 digs and 26 service aces. The sophomore has been sidelined with a right knee injury, which she suffered Oct. 8 against Davidson County.
CVCC (32-4), which won the Region 10 championship this past weekend, will attempt to clinch its ninth national tournament appearance on Saturday. The Red Hawks, ranked fifth in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association Division II poll, host Region 7 champion Walters State (20-8) in the Southeast District championship game at the Tarlton Complex. The game features a 2 p.m. start.
