Former Southwestern volleyball standout Camille Cline is making her second straight appearance in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Volleyball National Championship.
Cline, a 6-foot sophomore middle blocker at three-time defending national champion Florida College, began tourney play in Canton, N.Y. Friday where the Falcons beat Rochester (Minn.) and Penn State-Fayette in straight sets to get off to a 2-0 start in pool play.
Florida College beat Rochester 25-12, 25-21 and Cline had three kills and two assisted blocks and Penn State-Fayette 25-9, 25-21 when Cline delivered five kills and two solo blocks.
Cline currently ranks in the top five nationally in the USCAA in both kills and blocking. Florida College, which won its third straight USCAA national title last year in Louisville, Ky., is seeded fourth in this year's finals field.
Pool play continues today with the trophy round on Sunday in Canton.
