Seton Hill's Farian named PSAC Athlete of Year in volleyball
Volleyball standout Viktoria Farian is in elite company at Seton Hill.
The sophomore outside hitter was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Athlete of the Year Thursday, becoming just the third athlete at Seton Hill to earn such a distinction.
While leading the Griffins to their first PSAC Southwest Division title and a spot in the conference semifinals, Farian has produced a team-best 430 points and 373 kills. She is second on the team with 433 digs.
She has seven straight double-doubles.
Farian also was named to the All-PSAC First team.
Seton Hill (22-8) plays Shippensburg at 5 p.m. Friday in Erie.
The two others conference athletes of the year from Seton Hill are baseball player Nick Sell and women’s track and field athlete Mallory Sanner.
Sell was PSAC West Athlete of the Year in 2015, while Sanner was the conference’s top field athlete the same year.
