McKannan breaks career digs record

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In Birmingham-Southern’s match against No. 17 Southwestern University this past Friday in Georgetown, Texas, senior libero Jennifer McKannan became BSC’s all-time digs leader, breaking the previous record held by Sarah Harris.

McKannan broke the record with her fifth dig against Southwestern. Harris, who graduated last year, tallied 1,484 career digs; McKannan now owns 1,596 career digs in the young 2010 season. She is also second on the career list for digs per set with 4.31.

The Panthers, who are 11-2 on the season, are at home this weekend hosting the BSC Fall Classic, taking on Xavier University of Louisiana and Loyola New Orleans this Friday, and Dillard University and Belhaven University on Saturday in Bill Battle Coliseum.
