LSU Volleyball’s libero Ella Larkin has been selected as the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Co-Defensive Player of the Week announced Monday afternoon by the league office.

It’s her first conference weekly honor this season and third of her career.

Georgia’s middle blocker Sophie Fischer was also tabbed SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Week.

Larkin, a sophomore, led LSU’s defense with an average of six digs per set in a pair of wins against Alabama and South Carolina. She began the weekend with 31 digs in another five-set win at Alabama, marking her third 30-plus dig performance this season.

Larkin then had a match-high 17 digs in a sweep over South Carolina.

Larkin currently leads the SEC with 4.55 digs per set and 364 total digs.

LSU will host Mississippi State in a pair of matches Oct. 29-30 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center to conclude the month.
