The Martin Methodist Volleyball team completed won the 2019 SSAC Volleyball conference tournament Saturday afternoon in Montgomery, Alabama.


The RedHawks won the regular-season title for the first time since joining the league in 2013, and won their first ever conference tournament title as well.


The RedHawks had to win two matches on Saturday to claim the crown, besting Florida College by a 3-1 score in Saturday’s semifinal, and then defeating William Carey in Saturday’s final, 3-2.


Senior defender Hayley Brisendine was named conference tournament MVP.


The win gives the RedHawks their first ever trip to the NAIA national tournament since the tournament was restructured in 2008.
