Miller named NAIA National Defender of the Week

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Grace volleyball libero Sara Miller earned national recognition on Tuesday as the NAIA National Defender of the Week.

Miller, who has been the Crossroads League Defender of the Week twice this season, leads Grace’s back row. She boasts 1,798 digs to her credit and is just shy of 600 digs (597) for the season.

Last week, she averaged 8.0 digs per set against the league’s top-two teams. She had 22 digs in a 3-0 sweep of No. 25 Marian on Wednesday, beating a team that had won 21 of its past 22 matches. Miller followed that up with 26 digs and two aces against Indiana Wesleyan, who is receiving votes in the NAIA.

The Lady Lancers have two matches this week, including at Goshen on Wednesday and home against Bethel on Friday.
