Ratliff receives SEC preseason honors


BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – After a second breakout campaign, Ole Miss junior middle blocker Sasha Ratliff was one of fifteen student-athletes selected to the 2022 preseason All-SEC Volleyball Team.

Ratliff established himself as one of the top middle tackles in the SEC last season, earning an all-conference nod as well as AVCA All-Region honors. She was a key part of the Rebels’ 20-game turnaround and helped guide Ole Miss to his first NCAA Tournament appearance in 11 years.

The Atlanta, Georgia native paced the team with a school-high 113 assisted blocks and was a shy of the single-season total block record with 129. Ratliff was also a top offensive contributor , ranking third in the conference and 28th nationally at one . 385 strike clip.

This past offseason, Ratliff received an invite to the Women’s National Team Open Program in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she trained and competed with some of the top varsity players in the country.

Ratliff and the Rebels are expected to return to court in August.
