USA Volleyball’s Daniel Earns Second Freshman Of The Week Honor
South Alabama volleyball player Mechell Daniel earned her second Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Week honor on Tuesday.
This is the third honor for a Jaguar this fall and the ninth time overall that a Jaguar has earned a conference honor. Jessica Lewis was named the conference’s freshman of the week on September 6 and Daniel earned her first on September 16.
This is the first time that South Alabama’s Volleyball squad has earned a weekly award three times in a single season and Daniel is the first player in the program’s history to earn multiple player of the week honors.
Daniel is tied for second in the conference in points (4.32) and ranks third in both kills (3.73) and serving (0.32).
The Jags will travel to Louisiana-Lafayette on Friday to face the Ragin’ Cajuns at 6pm. They will then return home to host new SBC member Georgia State at 7pm on Saturday.
