NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Senior Madison Halterman was selected as the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday for her notable performance this past weekend. This is the fourth time this season that Halterman has received the award.
Over the weekend, Halterman tallied a total of 54 digs through two matches. The senior recorded a career and team-high of 32 digs in the match against Tennessee Tech on Friday and followed up with 22 digs against Jacksonville State the following day.
The senior ranks first in the OVC with 503 digs on the season, averaging 4.88 digs per set. Halterman also ranks first in the OVC in digs through conference-only matches, having recorded 223 digs through 14 matches.
“Madison is a threat to anyone we’re playing against,” said head coach Kathy Bullock. “She’s a beast! She deserves this award because she’s passionate and has the desire and the ability to back it.”
Halterman will take the court one last time in Kean Hall this Wednesday as the Tigers face Belmont University. The match will play host to ‘Senior Night’ where Madison and fellow senior Haley Hampton will be recognized for their contributions to the volleyball team and their successful athletic careers while at TSU.
