April 14, 2012 St. Catharine College played in its inaugural Beach Volleyball Tournament in Siesta Key, Florida.
Casey Stone and Allie Southard won the first match is school history, defeating NCAA Division 1 Stetson University. They made the silver division tournament after pool play and lost in the opening round. Shauna Stone and Lauren Bowling had a disappointing pool play with two matches being lost by only 2 points and were placed in the bronze division tournament. Here they finished in third place losing the semifinal match by only two points in extra points. For a couple of teams from Kentucky that had only been playing beach volleyball for a couple of weeks this was a very successful start to the St. Catharine College Beach Volleyball program. Next year we hope to carry 5 teams that will play a full schedule against NCAA and NAIA school including the national tournament in Florida again.
