Beaver Falls, PA – The Geneva College volleyball team saw its undefeated season come to an end on Saturday, but a 4-1 record last week combined with the outstanding play of junior setter Deanna Briody was reason enough for the Presidents’ Athletic Conference to tab Briody the volleyball player of the week.
The defending PAC player of the year, Briody helped Geneva win four of five matches including a victory in the first conference match of the season. She totaled 199 assists (11.06 assists/set) while adding 4.0 digs per set and 0.72 service aces per set. At the Hiram Invitational she finished with 165 assists in four matches (11.79 assists/set). For her efforts over the weekend, she earned her second consecutive All-Tournament selection in 2012.
The Golden Tornadoes improved to 8-1 on the season behind the play of Briody and a balanced offensive attack that features a handful of dangerous attackers. Geneva heads to Chatham on Tuesday to take on the Cougars as well as a date with Washington & Jefferson. After 11 matches away from home, Geneva will finally get a chance to play on its home court on Wednesday evening when it welcomes Waynesburg University.
