Korn Named NAIA National Defender of the Week


KANSAS CITY – TU’s Samantha Korn, who was selected as the Crossroads League Defender of the Week on Monday, continued to pile on honors, as she was recognized as the NAIA National Defender of the Week for her stout performances over the weekend.


The libero has been a star this season, leading the Trojans defense with 340 digs and collecting her 1,000th career dig on Saturday. Korn’s effort in the back row has her ranked 21st in the NAIA for total digs and 14th in digs per set.


Korn is the first Taylor athlete to receive an NAIA weekly honor for the 2018-2019 school year.


Korn and the Taylor volleyball team will take the court on Wednesday, as they face Indiana Wesleyan in Marion at 7:00 pm.
