The FAMU Lady Rattlers Volleyball team are the preseason favorites to win the southern
division of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) during the 2012-2013 academic year.
FAMU will return seven letter-winners from last year's team, including Karol Marquez, who made the preseason All-MEAC team. Marquez, a senior libero and defensive specialist from Lima, Peru, saw action in 95 sets, collecting 447 digs and averaging 4.71 digs per set to earn All-MEAC First Team honors last year.
FAMU finished with a 9-1 mark in conference play and a 13-14 overall record a year ago. The Lady Rattlers finished runners-up to the Lady Hawks in
last year's championship game, losing 3-2 in the championship match.
