INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA recently updated their national individual statistics for the 2014 season. Georgia College freshman Bailey Freeman (Hillsborough, North Carolina) and junior Ella Anastasiades (Atlanta) have both made the list in categories that include blocking and digs.

Freeman not only led the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) in blocks per set, she also comes in at No. 29 in Division II, averaging 1.14. During the season, she registered a total of 80, eclipsing the original single-season record of 62. In a match against GRU Augusta she logged a total of 10 blocks for her season and career-high.

Anastasiades consistently led the Bobcats' back row on the defensive front. Her average of 4.88 digs per set was good enough to place her third in the Peach Belt and No. 67 in the country. Over the course of the season she put up a total of 429 digs. She broke the Bobcat single-match record in a five-set game against GRU Augusta with 33.

The Bobcats concluded their second season 7-20 overall and posted a 2-16 conference mark.
