McVey Earns Second SEC VB Freshman Of The Week Honor
The Magnolia, Texas, native piled up 65 digs in two league matches last weekend, earning a place in the SEC record book with a remarkable 50-dig performance against LSU Friday night in the Newell-Grissom Building. McVey's stellar defensive showing bettered the previous SEC record of 46 set in 2006 by former Florida standout Elyse Cusack and stands as the 20th 50-dig performance all-time in NCAA volleyball. It's the most digs in an NCAA match this season.
She leads the SEC with 337 digs and averages 6.36 scoops per set, second-best in the NCAA, and 26.9 digs per match.
McVey earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors on opening weekend when in three matches she rang up 88 digs, including a school-record 42. She joins former Bulldog Martina Gregusova (2006) and current Bulldogs Paris Perret (2010) and Lainey Wyman (2011) as the fourth two-time winner of the weekly SEC award from Mississippi State.
