Former Benjamin Logan volleyball standout Alex Thompson recently helped Queens University of Charlotte to its first South Atlantic Conference Championship.

Third-seeded Queens won over fourth-seeded Carson-Newman University 21-25, 26-24, 25-20, 25-20 during the conference tournament Saturday in Jefferson City, Tenn.

Thompson, a senior, was named to the all-tournament team for Queens and had eight kills in the victory.

The win gives Queens an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional.
