STARKVILLE, Miss. - For the second straight year and the third time in program history Mississippi State has placed a player on the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Team in volleyball.

Record-breaking Bulldog libero Roxanne McVey (Magnolia, Texas) represents Mississippi State on the seven-player 2012 SEC All-Freshman Team announced Monday by the Southeastern Conference.

McVey piled up an SEC-leading and school-record 558 digs and started all 29 matches for Mississippi State in the just-concluded season. She recorded 10 matches with at least 20 digs, including an SEC-record and NCAA season-best 50 digs in a September 28 home match against LSU. She was the lone Bulldog to play in all 99 sets, establishing an SEC record with a 5.64 digs/set average.

"I am so proud of all that Roxanne has accomplished this season," said head coach Jenny Hazelwood, who in four seasons has now coached four MSU players accorded all-conference honors. "She is one of the most gifted volleyball players I have ever coached and is very deserving of being named to the SEC All-Freshman Team. We can definitely expect great things during her career at Mississippi State."

Middle blocker Lainey Wyman received SEC All-Freshman Team designation in 2011 as did MSU's initial freshman all-conference honoree, outside hitter Martina Gregusova (2006). Middle blocker Ashley Newsome (2010) and outside hitter Caitlin Rance (2011) were accorded second-team All-SEC honors over the past three seasons.
