HILLSBORO --- The Northwest Conference office announced its Student-Athlete of the Week selections for the week of Sept. 9-15 and tabbed Sophia Lawrence as the defensive recipient for its volleyball awards.

Lawrence helped her team snap a losing skid with a match-best 29 digs and two service aces in a four-set win over Austin. The junior libero leads the NWC in digs/set this season and has made a third of the Bruins' total digs so far in 2019. Her 173 total digs place her third by volume among all players in the NWC this season.

The Bruins host Pacific (Ore.) this weekend on Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:00 pm in Wheeler Sports Center to open NWC competition as part of the Bruins' homecoming weekend, before finishing their weekend with a match at Linfield on Saturday, Sept. 21.
