player gets OVC honor
Southeast Missouri State University's Lauren Scannell was named the Ohio Valley Conference's defensive player of the week for volleyball on Monday.
Scannell, a junior, had 56 digs in two weekend matches as Southeast posted wins over Murray State and Tennessee-Martin to clinch a spot in the OVC tournament. She has had more than 20 digs 10 times this season.
Southeast (11-16, 9-7 OVC), seeded fourth for the six-team conference tournament, plays No. 5 seed Austin Peay (14-15, 9-7) at 7 p.m. Saturday in a first-round match in Richmond, Ky.
