Sara Fernandez Named Co-NEC Player of the Week

Fairfield, Conn. (October 29, 2012)—Sara Fernandez (Guaynabo, PR) of the Sacred Heart Women's Volleyball team was named co-NEC Defensive Player of the Week after recording 33 digs this past weekend as the Pioneers swept both Bryant and Fairleigh Dickinson.

The sophomore averaged 5.50 digs per set, 18 total vs. Bryant and 15 vs. FDU. Her 11-point service run in the second set against the FDU Knights lifted Sacred Heart from a seven-point deficit, making it possible for SHU to take the second set.

Fernandez and the Pioneers are back in action Saturday at Robert Morris.
