ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) – Carson-Newman University was tabbed No. 6 in the updated NCAA Division II National Championship, with teams advancing to the national quarterfinals being reseeded.

The Eagles are coming off of a regional title win this past Saturday (Dec. 7) in which they defeated the No. 4 seeded Augusta Jaguars in straight sets. Five players were named to the all-tournament team led by Erin Edwards (Midlothian, Va.) who paced all players with a career-high 19 kills posting a scorching .435 hitting percentage. Morgan Ballard, Megan Oldenburger, Marnie Streeter and Kaina Roehrkasse also earned slots on all-tournamnet.
