Brady Named League’s Defensive Volleyball Player of the Week
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Davidson’s record-setting libero Bella Brady has been named the Atlantic 10’s Defensive Player of the Week after the opening weekend of the season, the league office announced Monday.
The reigning A-10 Co-Libero of the Year led the ‘Cats to a 2-1 opening slate, as the ‘Cats picked up a win over UNCW and the first win over Virginia Tech in program history on Saturday. Against UNCW, Brady matched her career-high with 36 digs and was just one dig short of tying the Hanover Hall record for most digs in a four-set match, previously set by Lopez Pereira of VCU in October of 2004.
Over the three-match weekend, Brady averaged 5.09 digs per set while dishing 11 assists. The junior also had two service aces en route to her sixth Defensive Player of the Week nod and seventh career A-10 weekly honor.
