Honorable Mention
Honorable Mention
In a really tight vote this week -
one that had a lot of teammates
split the vote - Lockwood
finished on top. It was a 3-1
stretch for the Lady Panthers
over this voting period, and
Lockwood’s defensive effort was
a key reason why. In the four
matches, Lockwood recorded
over 100 digs and 10 aces. Due
to some injuries in the
Southeastern rotation, Lockwood
did all of this while switching
back-and-forth from an all-
around role, to the libero
position, and back to the all-
around role.
