CHARLOTTE, NC (Sept. 28, 2021) – After a terrific week on the court, the honors are coming in for the Claflin Lady Panthers as senior libero Trinity Fierce was named the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Food Lion Defensive Player of the Week. The Lady Panthers went undefeated last week with wins over Allen (S.C.) and in the team’s CIAA opener against the Livingstone Blue Bears.

Fierce’s defensive effort was one of the keys to Lady Panthers’ victories last week. Against Allen (S.C.), she led the team with 16 digs and she followed the effort with 15 digs against Livingstone to open CIAA play.

The Lady Panthers will return to action this weekend,, October 2-3, when the team heads to Winston-Salem, N.C. to take part in the CIAA Volleyball Round Up.
