MACON, Ga. - The Lipscomb Lady Bisons twice battled for first place in the Atlantic Sun Conference Oct. 17 and 18 with 3-1 match wins on the road at Florida Gulf Coast and Stetson.
Senior outside hitter Lauren Ford paced the Lady Bisons winning weekend with 21 kills against Stetson and 20 against Florida Gulf Coast. Both were match highs.
For her efforts Ford was named A-Sun Player of the Week. It is her third career A-Sun Player of the Week award and the second this season.
