FREELAND, Mich. - Saint Mary's junior Brittney Tarkanyi has been selected as the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Volleyball Specialist Athlete of the Week for her performances from October 21 through October 27.
Tarkanyi, a native of Lake Orion, Michigan, led the Belles with 80 digs last week as the team faced off against four nationally-ranked teams in five total matches. In a 3-1 win over No. 7 ranked Wisconsin-Whitewater, she had a match-high 25 digs as Saint Mary's earned the team's first win over an NCAA Division III Top Ten opponent in program history. For the week, she averaged 4.44 digs per set for the Belles.
It is the first MIAA Athlete of the Week honor of her career.
