Liberty's Karyl Bacon and Loren Thomas were recognized by COBRA Magazine, a publication that celebrates the success of volleyball players of African descent.
Bacon, a senior outside hitter, was named to the All-East Region team, while Thomas, a sophomore middle blocker, earned an honorable mention. Bacon recently wrapped a successful collegiate career as the first player in program history to be a part of four Big South regular-season championship teams. The 2010 all-conference first team honoree also became the ninth player in Liberty history to join the 1,000/1,000 Club, as she concluded her career with 1,155 kills and 1,472 digs. The 5-6 Temecula, Calif. native was also a member of the 2010 Big South All-Academic team, the 2010 Big South Championship all-tournament team and the ESPN Academic All-District second team in her final season as a Lady Flame. Thomas, a 2010 all-conference second team honoree, ended her sophomore campaign leading the team and ranking No. 4 in the Big South with a .309 attack percentage. She also ranked third in the conference with a .360 hitting percentage against conference opponents. The 2010 COBRA awards mark the first time members of the Liberty volleyball program have been honored by the magazine.
