MACON, Ga. (Oct. 14, 2013) – Meredith Hardy (Kingsport, Tenn.) played a vital role in helping ETSU extend its winning streak this past weekend, and the Buccaneer middle blocker was rewarded for her strong efforts by receiving Atlantic Sun Player of the Week honors on Monday.

Hardy averaged 3.83 kills and 1.83 blocks per set, along with hitting .543 (23-4-35) in home sweeps over Stetson and Florida Gulf Coast, moving ETSU’s win streak to nine.

On Friday, Hardy kept the Bucs’ perfect mark intact against Stetson as the Kingsport, Tenn. native finished with 10 kills and five blocks while hitting .500 in the three-set win. The Hatters entered the match one-game behind the Blue and Gold in the A-Sun standings, but ETSU put some spacing between Stetson as the Bucs defeated them for the 14th straight time. Meanwhile, on Saturday, Hardy was dominate again as ETSU snapped FGCU’s six-match win streak. Hardy totaled 13 kills (.579 attack percentage) and six blocks versus the Eagles. Following her six-block effort, Hardy – the A-Sun leader in blocks – has now registered at least one block in 81 consecutive matches.

Three weeks ago the exercise science major picked up A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week honors, while this marks Hardy’s second career Player of the Week award.

Hardy and the Bucs gear up for a key road swing, which begins Friday night at Jacksonville. ETSU holds a half-game lead over the Dolphins and the match is set 7 p.m., inside Swisher Gym.
