Heels Celebrate Season At Annual Banquet
Release: 04/22/2013

The Tar Heels held their annual team banquet on Sunday, celebrating the 2012-13 season and four graduating seniors. 

The highlight of the banquet was the senior speeches given by Tia Gaffen, Emily McGee and Heather Henry. Cora Harms gave her senior speech via Skype, as she is studying abroad this semester in England.

The keynote speaker at the banquet was David Thornton, a 2001 Carolina graduate and former Tar Heel football player who played nine years in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans.

"David's message about his Carolina experience and the values of hard work, putting in the extra effort and going beyond the standard really drove an important message to all of us," head coach Joe Sagula said.

Malaika Underwood, a 2003 graduate and former UNC volleyball player and team captain gave the introduction. Underwood was teammates with assistant coach Eve Rackham. Malaika shared her perspective about the character and person that Thornton represents as a Carolina alum.

Sagula and the Carolina volleyball staff awarded players for their achievements during the season, which are listed below.
