Elizabeth Minder, a freshman on the PJC volleyball team, was voted as the defensive player of the week on Oct. 5, by the Florida Community College Athletic Association.
Minder has been playing volleyball for seven years and said this was the first individual honor she has ever received.
“I think it’s really cool,” Minder said about being chosen. “It’s such an honor to be voted for it, let alone be picked.”
She was selected thanks to a match against North West Shoals at the Gulf C oast Invitational Tournament in Panama City, held during the last week of September. Minder had 35 digs during that game alone, setting a record for PJC. She is also the first person to reach the 30-dig mark in one game in the FCCAA this year.
