The Southeastern Conference released its volleyball preseason All-SEC team Friday, tipping off another season of SEC volleyball.
Seven different schools are represented on the nine-member team, which is voted on by the league's head coaches. No ties were broken. Florida and Missouri led all schools with two selections each. Auburn, Kentucky, LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M each had a student-athlete named to the team. Eight of the nine players selected were named All-SEC First or Second Team in 2012.
