DURANT – The Southeastern Savage Storm are headed into the final four games of the season with a clear purpose – to get back to Hot Springs, Ark.
Hot Springs is the site of the Great American Conference postseason volleyball tournament. The Storm has been to the conference tournament each year since the inception of the GAC in 2011-2012.
Southeastern is currently in the No. 9 spot in the league standings, needing to move back into the top eight to clench a berth. The first of the final four matches is Thursday night at Bethany against Southern Nazarene.
The Savage Storm head up to face the Crimson Storm with a defensive leader who has pushed her name to the top of one the lists in the record book.
Caitlin Cosby became the all-time leader in digs last Thursday night in a home match against Southwestern.
Cosby, a junior from Keller, Texas (Timber Creek High School), recorded Dig No. 1,803 in the first set of the contest against SWOSU. Her career total now stands at 1,811.
This places her third on the all-time list for the Great American Conference with the rest of this season and her senior year to go. She has in front of her on that list GAC greats Abbey Bell (Southern Nazarene) with 2,482 digs and Madison Nagel (Arkansas Tech) with 2,359.
