ATLANTA — For the second straight week and the third time this season, Berry College's Laura Bier has been named the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) Volleyball Defensive Player of the week, the league office announced on Monday. 

Beier led the Vikings to a 3-0 week, including a win over No. 12 Emory. The freshman libero averaged 6.7 digs per set. That included an incredible 8.3 digs per set against Rhodes. She finished with double-digit digs in each match. She first had 23 stops against Emory, then she added 19 digs against Hendrix. She finished the week with 25 digs in the win against the Lynx.

The Vikings have already secured at least a share of their second straight SAA title, and look to wrap up hosting rights on Friday at Millsaps. Berry heads to Covenant College tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. for an out-of-conference tilt.
