Foster had a sensational tournament. The Hendersonville native had 15 kills and hit .650 in Asheville's 3-0 quarterfinal victory over Campbell last Thursday. She then led Asheville with 11 kills and hit .421 in a semifinal loss to Liberty on Friday.
In the final regular-season match of the year on Nov. 12, Foster had a career-best 24 kills and hit .460 in a five-set loss to the Flames.
"I was very pleased to see Meredith make the All-Tournament team," stated first-year coach Frederico Santos. "She played extremely well for us in the final weeks of the season. The future is extremely bright for our program when you consider Meredith has two more years to play for UNC Asheville."
The Bulldogs finished the season at 15-14 and in fourth place in the Big South Conference. Asheville was a preseason pick to finish in sixth place. All in all it was a successful season for the Blue & White.
"You always want to win more matches but overall I was satisfied with our season," explained Santos. "I thought our effort was outstanding from start to finish. We improved as the year progressed. All of are excited about the future."
Asheville does graduate two great seniors in Cindi Miller and Hallie Morse. Miller was a first team All-Conference selection the past two years, while Morse earned a spot on the All-Academic team and was the Bulldogs starting setter in 2011.
"We will have a hard time replacing Cindi and Hallie," declared Santos. "Both of them did a great job on the floor and as leaders."
