PIPPA PASSES - Junior captain Katie McFarland has provided excellent leadership for the young Alice Alice Lloyd Lady Eagles volleyball squad this season. Her leadership paid off on Tuesday as the team claimed its first win in a thrashing of Hiwassee College. The Alice Lloyd College Athletics Department has selected McFarland as its Female Athlete of the Week.
In matches played at Johnson University this week, the Church Hill, Tenn., native put up a big fight versus the host team, helping her squad registering two attacks and one kill. Her determination in team management was on full display, though, in the squad’s second match against Hiwassee. McFarland registered four aces, seven digs and three kills, but her solid and effective leadership was what really pushed the Lady Eagles to victory.
McFarland will seek to aid her team to a repeat performance in a tri-match at Asbury University on Saturday.
