Percival named to the NCCAA East Region Team

Amherst’s Lauren Percival, a sophomore, was named to the NCCAA East Region Team, while playing volleyball at Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

The former Amherst standout leads the Lady Cougars with 1,538 assists and 45 aces. She has also compiled 42 blocks and 90 blocks and is second on the team with 556 digs.

Percival was one of four members of the Mount Vernon team, along with their coach that were honored when the National Christian College Athletic Association East Region awards were announced recently following a vote by the region coaches.

The Lady Cougars are currently 40-3 overall (10-0 in the American Mideast Conference) after taking down West Chester University, 3-2 in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Quarterfinal match.

With the win, the Lady Eagles advance to today's semifinal where they will meet Edinboro, who took down defending PSAC champ California (Pa.) 3-1.

Kutztown and Clarion will meet in today's other semifinal match. The PSAC Championship match is set for Saturday at 2 p.m. Both semifinal matches and Saturday’s title contest will be played at Clarion, the No. 1 seed from the Western Division.
