NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — For the fifth time this season, sophomore libero Bella Brady has been honored in the Atlantic 10’s weekly awards, this time garnering the league’s Co-Defensive Player of the Week title, the conference office announced Monday. 

The Wildats traveled for a pair of road matches at Dayton and Duquesne last weekend, competing in seven total sets. Across the stretch Brady passed a .971 on serve receive and totaled 44 digs. Most notably, Brady averaged an astounding 6.29 digs per set over the weekend, even after recording just 10 digs during three sets against Dayton on Saturday. On Sunday against the Dukes, the Florida native recorded 34 digs, just two shy of her career high, and passed a perfect 20-for-20 on serve receive.
