Meyer named To Golden Dome All-Tournament Team

The Bowling Green volleyball team kicked off their campaign at the Golden Dome Invitational on August 30 and 31. Bowling Green began the tournament by topping Wright State in four sets, but fell short to La Salle in five sets and then Notre Dame in four, bringing their record to 1-2 after the first tournament of the year.
        Following the Golden Dome Invitational, 5-foot-10 sophomore outside hitter Katelyn Meyer was named to the All-Tournament Team. Meyer registered a career high 18 kills against Wright State. Against Notre Dame, Meyer registered nine kills.
        Last year as a freshman, Meyer was named All-MAC first team, appearing in 29 matches and playing in 95 sets. Meyer averaged 2.81 kills per set to become the team’s leader in kills with 267 and recorded a season high of 16 kills versus Eastern Michigan, 14 kills and zero attacks errors for a .424 average in hitting efficiency versus Kent State, reached double-digit kills in 15 matches, registered a total of 15 service aces from the back line and put up 93 digs and 32 total blocks on the season.
        A four-year letter-winner at Eastwood for both the volleyball and track and field programs, Meyer also played club with the Premier Volleyball Academy. At Eastwood, she was a four-time all-conference honoree and earned back-to-back Northern Buckeye Conference and Ohio District 7 Player of the Year accolades, totaling 1,482 kills in her four-year career and helping the team post a 52-2 record over her final two seasons.
        In the Mid-American Conference volleyball preseason poll, Bowling Green was picked to finish second in the East Division, as voted on by the conference's 12 head coaches. The Falcons received two votes to win the regular season, and four votes to win the 2019 MAC Tournament. 
        Miami was picked to win the East Division, regular season title and tournament title with Ball State being picked to win the MAC West. Miami, Bowling Green, Ohio and Western Michigan received votes to win the regular-season with OU's eight votes topping BGSU's two. Miami's six votes were the most for the tournament champions, followed closely by Bowling Green's four. 
        A year ago, the Falcons topped the MAC regular season standings, capturing the second of back-to-back MAC titles for the Orange and Brown. Bowling Green won their exhibition match against Gannon, 3-1, on August 24.
