FLORENCE, SC - Francis Marion University’s Lezlie Logan has been named the Peach Belt Conference’s “Co-Freshman of the Year” for the 2003 women’s volleyball season.
Logan, a 5-10 middlehitter from Cleburne, Texas, shares the honor with Mandy Rupert of USC Spartanburg.
Logan led FMU in kills (2.81 per game) and total blocks (0.94 per game), and was one of only two Patriots to appear in all 129 games this season. She recorded a .215 hitting percentage, 12 assists, 15 service aces, and 53 digs (0.41 per game).
She had a team-high 20 matches where she registered double-figure kills, including a season-high 20 kills in a 3-2 win over UNC Pembroke. She recorded 10 matches with a hitting percentage above .300, including three matches above .500.
During the regular season, she was named to the All-Tournament Team at the South Region Challenge hosted by USC Aiken.
Logan becomes the second Patriot to earn the conference honor, joining setter Crystal Poskey, who shared the “Freshman of the Year” award in 1996.
A young Patriot squad (only one senior) finished the 2003 season with an 11-24 mark.
Logan was a two-time All-District performer at Cleburne High School under the direction of coach Floyd Rogers.
