CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Shaw University senior Aisja Jones (Red Oak, TX) of the Lady Bears women's volleyball team was chosen as the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week Tuesday morning.
In her first season ever playing Libero at the collegiate level, Jones has proven that she has an all-around game as she led the Lady Bears defensive unit to an undefeated week, registering 67 digs highlighted by a career-high 23 digs in Shaw's 3-1 victory at Fayetteville State (Oct. 14). Jones posted 10 assists and four service aces in the Lady Bears 4-0 record in CIAA action last week.
The Lady Bears (10-8, 10-1 CIAA) will return to action Wednesday, Oct. 23 with a home contest against Livingstone College at 6 p.m. in C.C. Spaulding Gymansium for Dig Pink.
