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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
