Southeast roundup: Hughes, Barth nab volleyball honors

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Southeast Missouri State won two of the Ohio Valley Conference's three weekly awards for volleyball.

Junior middle blocker Emily Hughes is the OVC offensive player of the week, while senior Sarah Barth is the league's setter of the week.

The two were honored Monday for their performances over the weekend at the season-opening Memphis Invitational, where Southeast went 2-1 and captured the title.

Hughes was the tournament's most outstanding player. She had 69 kills in the three matches, including a career-high 24 against Evansville.

Barth, also an all-tournament selection, recorded 137 assists and had two double-doubles.

Southeast returns to action Friday at the Belmont Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.
