BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Junior Lauren Bedford has been voted the Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week by the Southern Athletic Association, the league office announced today.
Bedford, a libero from Trussville, Ala., helped BSC go 4-1 this week (including a 2-1 mark against SAA opponents), posting double-digit digs in four of five matches (she saw limited action in the fifth match against Wesleyan) including 20+ digs twice. For the week she had 75 digs (4.17 per set), as well as six service aces. Bedford now leads the SAA in digs.
The Panthers are at home this weekend after nearly a month on the road, hosting Hendrix, Saturday, and Rhodes, Sunday, both at 1 p.m. in Bill Battle Coliseum.
