For the second time in three weeks, Morehead State senior libero Leslie Schellhaas has been selected the Ohio Valley Conference volleyball Defensive Player of the Week.

Schellhaas earned an all-tournament team honor for the Eagle Challenge after recording 5.83 digs per set over the three matches last weekend. She compiled a season-high 28 digs in the win over Hampton Saturday and followed that up with 24 digs versus Campbell. Schellhaas moved above the 1,700-dig plateau for her career and now ranks fifth at Morehead State.

It marked her fourth career weekly honor from the league. She was named the Defensive Player of the Week twice in 2012.

After completing a seven-match homestand at 5-2, Morehead State travels to play in the Pittsburgh Panther Invitational this weekend.
