ROCK HILL, S.C. --- Tusculum outside hitter Cassie Born has been named the AstroTurf South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week announced league officials Tuesday.

Born, a junior from Horse Shoe, North Carolina, averaged 4.31 kills and 3.92 digs in leading the Pioneers to a 2-1 record in their three conference matches last week.

She hit .360 with 12 kills and five digs in TC's 3-0 loss at Lenoir-Rhyne last Friday.  Born and the Pioneers bounced back with a 3-2 victory at Catawba on Saturday. In that match, she tallied 18 kills, 20 digs, two assists and a service ace.

She is averaging 3.48 kills per set this year which is the sixth best average in the league.  Her 115 total kills are second in the SAC, while also averaging 3.27 digs and leads the team with 128 points.
