Megan Makuck, VOLLEYBALL

Junior Megan Makuck of the Oglethorpe volleyball team has been named the SAAC Female Athlete of the Month.

MaKuck, a junior libero on the team, has started the defense of her SAA Defensive Player of the Year crown with an excellent month. She currently finds herself in the SAA top five in digs per set and service aces per set. She sits fourth with 4.30 digs per set and fifth with 0.45 service aces per set. She recorded a season-high 26 digs in the season-opening loss to Covenant, and a season-high five service aces in a 3-1 victory over Wesleyan the same day.

She and the rest of the Petrels begin conference play this weekend, when they take on Sewanee at noon Saturday and Centre at 11 a.m. Sunday from Dorough Field House.
