Taylor White of the Daily Beacon takes a closer look at the rise of freshman Kendra Turner up the Tennessee volleyball depth chart.
The Louisiana native ranks second on the team in total kills and is just one of three Lady Vols to have eclipsed the 100-kill mark this season. She has 113 total kills, good for 2.57 per set, and holds the top hitting percentage (.187) on the team for players that have logged at least 200 attacks. Earlier this season, Turner hammered 19 kills against Kennesaw State -- the highest individual output for UT this year.
Joe Sullivan of Metro Pulse penned this feature story on the arrival of new director of track and field/cross country Beth Alford-Sullivan, her impact on the program, and the plans for renovation of Tom Black Track.
Coach Sullivan's hire was announced on June 24 of this past summer and she arrives on Rocky Top after 15 years at Penn State -- eight of which were spent as the head of the dual men's and women's programs. She produced nine Big Ten championships in her tenure at Penn State. She produced 158 All-Americans and four individual NCAA champions.
Happy Birthday to three special current and former Vol Football players, Todd Kelly Jr., Danny Finch and the legendary Hank Lauricella!
Lauricella was a back for the Vols from 1949-51. He earned All-American honors in 1951 and All-SEC First Team selection in 1950 and 1951. He won a regional award in 1950 for most outstanding tailback and was second in the 1951 Heisman vote. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1981.
Kelly is one of the seven legacy freshmen on the roster, following his father Todd Kelly Sr. He has started in two of the five games so far this season and has 13 tackles and two interceptions on the season.
Finch, a redshirt freshman long snapper, has yet to see action for the Vols. He was a three-year letterwinner at Maryville High School and helped his team to the championship game in each of his seasons on varsity, winning the 2010 and 2011 titles.
Tennessee head coach Butch Jones will make his usual weekly appearance on 3HL with Brent Dougherty and Blaine Bishop and Mickey Ryan on Nashville's 104.5 The Zone this afternoon at 5:00 p.m. ET. You can listen on 104.5 in Nashville or online RIGHT HERE.
34 days and I can't wait to see my vols in action. Though I will be stationed in the Republic of Korea, it is my hope that Slingbox will allow me to see each and every game (including pay per view). GO VOLS!!! We are on the rise again.
