NCCAA weekly honor for Lady Tornado's Earwood

GREENVILLE, S.C. - King College's Shannon Earwood set her way to the NCCAA Volleyball Student-Athlete of the Week award, the national office announced.

Earwood helped King to the NCCAA Mid-East Region championship match last week. In four matches she totaled 126 assists in 12 sets for a 10.5 assists per set average. She also recorded 11 kills and served four aces at the tournament. Earwood was credited with 21 digs.

In the championship contest with Campbellsville (Ky.) University, Earwood posted a double-double with 45 assists and 14 digs.

The Lady Tornado received an at-large bid to the 2010 NCCAA Division I Volleyball National Championship. King starts the event Thursday with two pool-play contests.

She is the first Lady Tornado to win the weekly award this season.
