As Morehead State beach volleyball prepares for its fourth season of competition, a new and familiar conference affiliation is on the horizon.

"This is a big day for Morehead State and the Ohio Valley Conference," said interim director of athletics and head coach Jaime Gordon. "Establishing beach volleyball as an OVC Championship sport will have a positive impact on our student-athletes."

Following the conclusion of the regular season, Morehead State beach volleyball's Chandler Clark has been bestowed Atlantic Sun Conference postseason honors for her role as a student-athlete.

The Seymour, Ind. native has been named one of 10 ASUN student-athletes which comprise the league's All-Academic Team. Clark-a junior in competition-becomes the first Morehead State beach volleyball student-athlete to be named to the ASUN's All-Academic team.

Facing Atlantic Sun competition for the first time in program history, Morehead State beach volleyball worked a split versus familiar completion on Saturday. The Eagles (9-4, 1-1 ASUN) dropped the first match of their dual match with Austin Peay (6-10, 2-2) before storming back to claim victory in the second match.

Both matches featured the same final score of 3-2 and Morehead State's victory in the second match marked the program's first ASUN victory as well as the first victory over the Governors in the sand.
