BUENA VISTA, Va.—Southern Virginia University women's volleyball freshman setter/right side Chelsea Lyons today was named USCAA Setter of the Week after recording 61 assists and nine service aces over a four-match, five-day stretch last week. 

"Chelsea [Lyons] had a great all-around performance for us last week," said tenth-year Head Coach Michael Harmon. "She is versatile and has helped our team this season in rising to the occasion by playing varying positions on the court." 

The highlight of Lyons' (McCallen, Texas) week came on Friday, Oct. 19, as she recorded a team-high 20 assists and seven service aces in addition to eight digs and six kills on the road helping Southern Virginia to a four-set victory over NAIA Meredith College

Lyons also performed well in the right side hitting role as she registered 26 kills with a .261 kill percentage while adding 28 digs over the four matches.
