CHARLOTTE, N.C.- UNC Asheville volleyball senior Madison Vaughn has been named the Big South Conference Attacking player of the week, the League announced this afternoon.

 

Vaughn, a senior from Statesville, N.C. earned player of the week honors from her performance in Asheville’s three home matches this past week. In the Bulldogs’ Tuesday match against Charleston Southern, Vaughn led the Bulldogs in attacking percentage (.444) with nine kills and only one error on 18 attempts. In Friday's win over Winthrop, she matched a team-high 11 kills on 26 attempts, along with a season-high five blocks. In Saturday's upset, she delivered seven kills and only one error on twelve attempts to hit (.500) for the match.

 

“We are all very thrilled about Madison's honor this week. It's a process in which the whole team can take pride in because they are pushing and making each other better,” said head coach Frederico Santos.

 

Vaughn was also named to the Big South Conference’s seven-member All-Conference team in August. In the 2015-16 season, she led the Bulldogs in total blocks (105) and average blocks per set (1.06). She also had the best attacking percentage of Asheville players with 100 or more total attempts (.346).

 

Vaughn and the Bulldogs will be back in action tomorrow night when they look to continue their two-match win-streak against Presbyterian College in the Justice Center at 7:00 p.m.
