LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – It's a clean sweep of the four major PSAC West postseason awards for the PSAC West champion Clarion University women's volleyball team.
Thursday saw senior setter Laura Subject named the PSAC West Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive season, junior Libero Morgan Seybold named the Defensive Player of the Year, freshman middle hitter Gabrielle Olson named the Rookie of the Year and head coach Jennifer Mills named the Coach of the Year for the second straight season and for the third time in the last five years. The awards are voted on by the conference coaches.
Clarion, which has won back-to-back PSAC West titles, is the first PSAC school (West or East) to sweep all four major awards since the Defensive Player of the Year award was created in 2011, and it is the first PSAC West school to sweep all of the major award since IUP took home Coach of the Year, Athlete of the Year and Rookie of the Year in 2002.
In addition to the major awards, Subject and Seybold are first-team All-PSAC West.
Seybold, a West Allegheny graduate, leads the PSAC for the second straight year in digs and ranks fourth in the country with 6.37 per set.
