Fusselman Named SCAC Defensive Player of the Week

Austin College volleyball player Rachel Fusselman has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the week for all matches played from September 21-27, the league office has announced.

Fusselman, a senior libero from Trophy Club, was outstanding for the ‘Roos, totaling 133 digs against just six reception errors in six matches. The ‘Roos went 3-3 on the week, including a big win over SCAC rival Texas Lutheran to cap off the weekend, with Fusselman averaging 6.33 digs-per-set for the week. Fusselman had 20 or more digs in four of the team’s six games, including 33 digs in a win over Arlington Baptist.

Fusselman is also close to making Austin College history, as she enters this weekend’s matches with 1,954 digs for her career. The all-time Kangaroo record for digs in a career is 1,968, set by Adrienne Reynolds in 2012.

Austin College athletic teams participate as a member of the NCAA Division III and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
