Pacers picked 5th in PBC, Smith earns preseason honor
USC Aiken volleyball standout Alie Smith has been named to the PBC preseason all-conference team.
Smith, a senior from St. Johns, Florida, is a three-time all-PBC selection. The 5-foot-10 outside hitter earned second-team all-league honors as a freshman and sophomore before picking up first-team accolades a season ago.
Smith has earned all-region honors twice in her career – as a freshman and junior. As a sophomore, she was named to the all-tournament team for the NCAA Southeast Regional.
Having surpassed the 1,000-kill mark during USCA’s last match, Smith is set to become just the fifth Pacer (since 1981) to register 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs during her career. She enters the season just 20 digs shy of 1,000.
The Pacers were selected fifth in the PBC Coaches Poll. Flagler was picked first.
USCA opens the season next Friday at Flagler.
USCA updates spring sports attendance policy
USC Aiken announced Friday an update to its attendance policy for all home athletic events. These policies will take effect immediately until further notice.
Attendance for all home baseball games is limited to the pass list provided by the USCA baseball team. However, there will be 50 tickets for sale and 30 student tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets for doubleheaders will be good for both games. Fans are encouraged to wear masks the entire time.
Attendance for home softball and soccer games is still limited to the pass list provided by the respective teams.
