The senior also holds a piece of the single-match record for digs, making 36 against Arkansas on Nov. 2, 2007. A three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member, Cline made the SEC’s Community Service Team for volleyball in 2007. Cline was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Second Team this week.
