Hempfield grad Morgan DeFloria Named PSAC Central Division Volleyball Athlete of the Week


It was quite a week for Shippensburg senior Morgan DeFloria.

The Hempfield graduate had 31 kills and 23 digs in helping the Shippensburg women’s volleyball team to a 2-0 week.

For her efforts, DeFloria was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Central Division Volleyball Athlete of the Week on Tuesday.

It is the second PSAC weekly award of her career.

Shippensburg (14-2, 4-0 PSAC) swept previous conference unbeatens Seton Hill and Cal (Pa.) this past weekend. The Raiders have now set a school record with 13 consecutive victories.

Against Seton Hill, DeFloria delivered a match-high 19 kills, the most by a Raider in a three-set match since September 2013. She also had nine digs, an ace and two blocks.

Against Cal (Pa.), DeFloria had a team-high 12 kills and 14 digs for her ninth double-double of the season.

DeFloria’s previous PSAC weekly honor came last season, nearly one year to the day (Sept. 26, 2017).

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
