Volleyball star Fox wins ‘Athlete of the Week’

 -  -  6


The Bethel College volleyball team has won five matches in a row and a major part of the recent upswing has been the stellar play of this week’s “Athlete of the Week” – junior Morgan Fox.
Fox tips the ball over the net in the heat of an Aug. 30 match against IUSB.
In conference wins over the University of Saint Francis, Goshen College and Spring Arbor University, Fox was a constant force with 12 kills, 87 assists, six aces and 36 digs. On Sept. 26, Fox led the Pilots to an easy straight set win over IU Northwest by assisting on seven kills and scoring seven aces. The Red Wolves never scored more than 12 points in any game as the Pilots cruised to victory. After scuffling at the start of the season, the Pilots have experience a sudden resurgence due in no small part to the play of Fox. The Pilots lost their first five Crossroads League matchups but have now won four league matches in a row, bringing their overall record to 10-9. Fox has been a team leader throughout. The Lafayette, Ind. native leads the Pilots in serve percentage and is second on the team with 263 assists. Fox will look to keep up her consistent play and help the Pilots continue their five-match winning streak when they take on Marian University on Friday, Oct. 6 at 7:00 pm.
