Birmingham, AL— While both division crowns are still up for grabs with three weeks remaining in the regular season, the races for the eight berths in the Gulf South Conference tournament are starting to come more into focus.
The East Division looks similar. Valdosta State holds a slim half-game advantage over West Florida, which is currently ranked No. 25 in the country, and North Alabama. VSU and UWF are scheduled for a big showdown on Friday that could change the complexion of the race in the East. Alabama-Huntsville is currently in fourth but West Georgia and West Alabama are just two games behind in the lost column with five games remaining.
North Alabama libero Lauren Greenhill (Jr., 5-8, Florence, Ala.) is the Gulf South Conference East Division Defensive Player of the Week for the third time this season. The junior averaged 5.4 digs per game (81 total) for the Lions, who went 2-2 in the Regional Crossover at Florida Southern tournament. She had 27 digs against Saint Leo and 23 more against Lynn. Greenhill added seven assists and three service aces.
