Spotlight Bleu Devil
September 15, 2015

Junior libero Demetria Horton has been selected as Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Defender of the Week as well as DU Athlete of the Week for the dates of September 7-13.  Horton battled through injury to help lead the Lady Bleu Devils to their first win of the season by collecting a season-high 25 digs in a 3-1 victory over Centenary College in their final game of the Millsaps College Volleyball Tournament.  In five matches during the week she averaged 15.5 digs per contest.  Her reception average for the week was .962.

Horton is the team leader in receptions with 68.

Her Lady Bleu Devils host the University of Mobile on Tuesday night at 7 pm and then host Tougaloo College for their first conference game of the year on Friday night at 6 pm at the Battlefield in Dent Hall.  Fans are encouraged to wear black for the game on Friday as we “blackout the Battlefield.”
