Senior Chelaine McCarty is an honorable mention AVCA All-East Region team member for the second consecutive season.

For the second consecutive year, Liberty senior middle blocker Chelaine McCarty is an honorable mention American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-East Region honoree. She becomes the first Lady Flames volleyball player ever to earn AVCA recognition twice during her career.

McCarty (Houston, Ala.) was the only Big South Conference player honored by the AVCA on Wednesday, after leading the Lady Flames to their third consecutive 20-win season. Liberty won a share of its third straight Big South regular-season championship and returned to the Big South Championship title match for the third season in a row.

McCarty was previously named a first team All-Big South selection, after earning a trio of Big South Player of the Week certificates during her senior campaign. The middle blocker earned CVU.com Top Performer recognition on Sept. 29, and was named to the all-tournament teams at the Liberty Invitational presented by Pepsi as well as Wake Forest's Black & Gold Challenge.

The Alabama native ranked No. 2 in the Big South and broke her own Liberty rally-scoring record with a .356 attack percentage for the season. During conference play, the senior hit a Big South-best .385. McCarty also paced the Lady Flames with 32 aces and finished No. 7 in the conference with 92 total blocks.
