Farney Repeats as GSC Player of the Week

Arkansas Tech’s Laura Farney has earned her second consecutive Gulf South Conference West Division offensive player of the week award after helping the Golden Suns post a 6-0 record last week.

Farney (photographed), a 6-foot junior outside hitter from Morton, Ill., had 63 kills and a .362 hitting percentage last week.

Her play helped the Golden Suns go undefeated at the University of Alabama in Huntsville/Country Inn and Suites Tournament.

For the season, Farney has recorded a team-high 186 kills. She also has 156 digs, 22 blocks and 10 service aces in 2010.

Arkansas Tech (12-3) will return to the court when it hosts Ouachita Baptist at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21.
