Austin College volleyball player Rebekah Bowden has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week.


Bowden, a senior middle blocker from Flint, reached a milestone when she recorded her 500th career total block and averaged 1.5 blocks-per-set in the three matches in which she appeared.


That included a performance of seven total blocks in a Senior Night victory over Arlington Baptist, which included three solo blocks. This is the second time this season Bowden has earned this award.
