Lacy Stevens’ (Jr. DS/L Edgemont, S.D.) efforts for the Black Hills State University volleyball team the week of September 21 landed her Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors.
The Edgemont native was instrumental in the Yellow Jackets’ 3-0 victory over New Mexico Highlands University on September 25 when she registered 12 digs. BHSU’s victory over the Cowgirls snapped a four-game losing streak.
Statistically, Stevens turned in her most impressive performance in a 3-1 loss to Western New Mexico University on September 26 with 27 digs.
Stevens totaled 39 digs and a pair of service aces during the Yellow Jackets’ 1-1 trek on the week.
“Lacy specifically did a great job staying true and disciplined,” said Yellow Jacket head coach Kristin Carmichael. “She was a complete rock star and brought us back in that second set that helped us come back and win it.”
This isn’t Stevens’ first go-around on the accolade train. She captured RMAC Defensive Player of the Week honors for her efforts the week of October 20, 2014.
Stevens is a two-time member of the RMAC Academic Honor Roll (2013, 2014) and is the only Yellow Jacket volleyball player to receive Defensive Player of the Week honors since BHSU joined the RMAC in 2012.
Stevens paces the Yellow Jackets with 205 digs along with eight service aces this season. She currently owns 953 career digs.
