FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Covenant volleyball juniors Ginny Moore and Schuyler Moore earned first team All-USA South honors, while senior Morgan Opgenorth and junior Jessica Seehorn were second team All-West Division honorees as the conference announced its postseason awards on Thursday.

Sophomore Hannah Harris was Covenant's representative on the All-Sportsmanship team. The Moore twins were also selected to the All-West Division first team. 

All awards are voted on by the volleyball coach at each institution. The divisional team voting is completed only by those coaches in the particular division. The all-conference and individual award voting is completed by all coaches.

For Ginny Moore, a junior from Fort Myers, Fla., she earns her third straight All-USA South selection. The junior led Covenant in several categories, including kills (340), kills per set (3.18) and total digs (418). Her 340 kills currently ranks fourth in the USA South. Moore tallied 16 double-doubles on the year. She was named USA South Player of the Week on Oct. 17 after averaging 3.85 kills and 4.46 digs per set during the award period.

Schuyler Moore also earns her third straight All-USA South accolade. The junior from Fort Myers, Fla., totaled over 1,000 assists for a second straight year with 1,025 and ranks fifth in the USA South with 8.99 assists per set. Moore also accumulated 118 kills, 355 digs and 35 aces on the year. The junior tallied 19 double-doubles and recorded 40-plus assists in nine matches.

Opgenorth, a senior from Flower Mound, Texas, notches her first All-Conference selection with her second team All-West honor. Playing just her second year of college volleyball, Opgenorth was a force in the middle averaging 1.74 kills per set and 0.66 blocks per set. The senior totaled 169 kills and a career-best 64 total blocks to go with 35 service aces. 

Seehorn, a junior from Dalton, Ga., also picks up her first career All-Conference honor. The junior also put together a career year with 226 kills (2.15 per set), 252 digs, 31 total blocks and 44 aces, all career-highs. Seehorn had 10 matches with double digit kill outputs, with a season-high 15 coming in a 3-1 win over Sewanee on Oct. 29.

Harris, a sophomore from Rochester, Minn., had a strong year as well with 200 kills and a 1.96 kills per set average. The sophomore also tallied 46 total blocks and 86 digs on the year.
