The Moccasins' Anna Niebuhr has earned the Sunshine State Conference Defensive Player of the Week Award for her performance in a pair of SSC wins last week.
In a five-set win over Rollins, Niebuhr produced a career-high 30 digs from her libero position. She followed that effort with a team-best 25-dig performance in Saturday's four-set win at Florida Tech.
For the week, she led the team with 55 digs and averaged 6.11 digs per set. Niebuhr has been playing the libero position since Courtney Johnson went down with a knee injury in late September and now leads the team for the season with 241 digs.
