LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Georgetown College's Rachel Eubanks and coach Nick Griffin, Lindsey Wilson College's Courtney Doyle and University of the Cumberlands' Abigail Dundon headline the 2012 Mid-South Conference volleyball awards announced Thursday night at the conference's annual banquet.

Eubanks was selected Mid-South Volleyball Player of the Year and Griffin was picked by his peers as the MSC Coach of the Year.

The Georgetown duo led the Tigers to a 31-3 regular season and a perfect 15-0 mark in MSC play. Georgetown is the top-seed in this weekend's conference tournament at the MidAmerican Sports Center in Louisville.

Eubanks ranked in the conference's top-10 in three statistical categories during the season, including fourth in kills per set (3.1) and fifth in kills (347). She was ninth in hitting percentage (.293). Eubanks earned Mid-South Conference Player of the Week twice during the season.

Griffin earns his second MSC Coach of the Year award after leading the Tigers to 2012 regular season crown. He was also the 2009 conference coach of the year.

Doyle was picked as the MSC Freshman of the Year after helping the Blue Raiders to a 25-12 overall record and a 12-3 conference mark. Doyle was third in the MSC this season in kills (372) and kills per set (3.4).

Dundon was selected as the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Champions of Character recipient. She earned the award based on her academic and athletic achievement, campus and community leadership, future ambition and demonstration of five core character values of the NAIA.

On the court, Dundon averaged 4.3 assists per set for the Patriots.

A total of 14 women earned All Mid-South Conference First Team while another 14 women were named all-conference honorable mention as voted on by the conference coaches. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players.
