Quntashea Lewis earns All-South Region Honors

The 2015-16 All-Region teams have been announced. Quntashea Lewis was selected to the third team All-South. She had a stellar season and career at Salem capped off by this selection. Lewis was a seven-time Great South (GSAC) Player of the Week, GSAC Most Valuable Player, and GSAC All-Tournament team member.
