Local Roundup - Bellissimo awarded AotW


    As announced Wednesday by the league office, Moriah Bellissimo has been named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for September 29.
    The sophomore helped lead the Georgia Southern Volleyball team to a 2-0 start in league play, defeating Wofford and Furman over the weekend.

The middle hitter posted 14 kills against Wofford and 13 against Furman, while also registering 20 digs against the Terriers and 13 against the Paladins.
