CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Mid-American Conference announced the MAC Scholar-Athletes of the Week Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 15). Of those named, Bowling Green's Lauryn Hovey was named the MAC Female Scholar-Athlete of the Week. This is Hovey's first Scholar-Athlete award as a member of the Falcons.
Hovey had an incredible weekend for the Falcons, leading BGSU to two wins over East Division-leading Buffalo to clinch a spot in the MAC Tournament. Hovey started the weekend with 26 kills in four sets in Friday's win, for her second 20-kill match of the season. In the process, she maintained a .380 attack percentage and narrowly missed a double-double with nine digs. She followed up the performance on Saturday with another 20-kill match with exactly 20 kills in BG's three-set sweep of the Bulls. In that match, she added five digs and logged a .302 hitting percentage. On the weekend, Hovey hit .344 with 46 kills (6.57 per set) for the Falcons.
The Falcons will wrap up the regular season at home on Wednesday (Nov. 15) by hosting the Miami (OH) RedHawks at the Stroh Center for a 6 p.m. first serve.
