Holsendolph, a former Bradwell Institute standout, picked up honors for the 100-meter hurdles and 100-meter dash. With her time of 13.9, Holsendolph recorded the second-best time in Georgia Southern history and finished second in the event.
Brianna Charles and Dana Edwards  were named to the all-freshman team for the long jump and 400-meter hurdles, respectively.
Appalachian State won the team championship with 195 points.
Western Carolina, the 2010 champion, finished in second placed with 138 points, taking a three-point advantage over third-place Elon (135).
Samford took fourth (114.5), the Eagles fifth (87.5) and Charleston finished in sixth (65.5). UNC Greensboro (26) edged Furman (25) for seventh place with The Citadel posting 20 points for ninth. Chattanooga (7), Wofford (2.5) and Davidson (2) rounded out the standings.
Appalachian State, Western Carolina and Georgia Southern each earned 13 points in the 100. Carter took the top point total with 10 and Billings and Holsendolph picked up points for seventh and eighth place, respectively. Billings (12.11) and Holsendolph (12.04) both posted personal-best times in the preliminaries on Friday.
