Megan MaKuck, VOLLEYBALL
Megan MaKuck of the Oglethorpe volleyball team has been named the SAAC Athlete of the Month.
MaKuck, a sophomore libero on the team, won the SAA Defensive Player of the Year award earlier this month, and was also named Second Team All-SAA.
MaKuck, who hails from Atlanta, was a digging machine for the Lady Petrels on her way to being named the Defensive Player of the Year. She led the conference in digs per set with 5.65, over a full dig per set more than the second-place finisher. Her 463 digs on the season led the conference, but MaKuck also showed great skill with her service. She fired 27 service aces on the season, ninth most in the league, and her average of 0.33 aces per set also placed her in the Top 10 in that category among the SAA's best.
