November 03, 2012
Decatur, GA-The Salem College volleyball team used the momentum from a dramatic comeback in the semifinals to upset top-seeded Huntingdon and win their first-ever Great South Championship. The Spirits were down 0-2 to Agnes Scott in the semifinal before they stormed back to defeat them 3-2. They went on to roll by the #1 seed Hawks of Huntingdon 3-1 in the championship match.
