BRISTOL, Tenn. – Julie Ward of the King University women's volleyball team had a great opening week, landing her Conference Carolinas Player of the Week honors.
The 2018 Conference Carolinas Freshman of the Year started 2019 where she left off last season, with another double-double. Ward posted 15 kills and 19 digs in the season-opener against Carson-Newman University. The double-double was the 15th of her career and first of the season. She followed that with six kills and 16 digs against Mars Hill University before leading King with 17 kills and seven digs in a win over Lincoln Memorial University on Saturday evening.
This marks the third time Ward has been selected Conference Carolinas Player of the Week. She earned player of the week honors twice a season ago.
