Georgetown’s Caraline Maher claims Mid-South Volleyball Player of the Week
Sept. 15, 2014
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Georgetown (Ky.) senior middle hitter Caraline Maher is the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, conference officials announced on Monday.
The weekly honor is the first of the season for Maher and the sixth of her career. She collected the conference honor once in 2011, once in 2012 and three times last season.
The Cincinnati, Ohio, native posted double-digit kills in each of Georgetown’s four wins last week. Maher averaged 2.8 kills per set while amassing a .370 attacking percentage. She also contributed nine blocks and four digs during the week.
In the Tigers’ sweep of Pikeville (Ky.), Maher posted a .769 attacking percentage with 11 kills and just one error in her 13 swings. To close out the week, Maher had 11 kills in 18 attack attempts in a sweep of Indiana University-East.
Maher ranks in the conference’s top 10 in three statistical categories; she is third in attacking percentage (.313), fifth in total kills (131) and sixth in kills per set (2.8). Maher is 40th in the NAIA in attacking percentage.
No. 13-ranked Georgetown is 10-3 on the season and leads the Mid-South with a 3-0 record following last week’s play. The Tigers -- who have won 10 straight -- hosts Cumberlands (Ky.) on Wednesday and travels to No. 22 Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) on Friday

Sept. 15, 2014
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The St. Catharine (Ky.) duo of Ashley Woods and C.J. Powell sweeps the Mid-South Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week honors, conference officials announced on Monday.
The weekly honor is the first this season and of the careers of both Woods and Powell.
Woods scored twice and added an assist in two Patriot wins last week to earn Mid-South Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.
The Manchester, England, senior forward netted his first goal of the season in the Patriots’ 3-0 win over Asbury (Ky.) on Tuesday. Woods followed with a goal and an assist in St. Catharine’s 2-0 win over NCAA Division II Kentucky Wesleyan to close out the Patriots’ week on Thursday.
With his five-point week, Woods moved into a tie for 13th in the conference’s points list. His two goals are tied for 10th in the Mid-South.
Powell recorded his first two shutouts of the season en route to earning Mid-South Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.
The Louisville, Ky., senior goalkeeper finished with three saves in the Patriots win over Asbury. Powell stopped all five shots he faced in the win over Kentucky Wesleyan.
Powell ranks third in the Mid-South and 17th in the NAIA with a 0.50 goals against average. His 18 saves are the fourth most in the conference this season.
St. Catharine improves to 3-2 on the season with last week’s wins. The Patriots travel to Cumberlands (Ky.) on Wednesday
Mid-South Conference Announces Football Players of the Week
Sept. 15, 2014
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Faulkner’s (Ala.) Terrell Robinson, Campbellsville’s (Ky.) Daniel DeLeon and Union’s (Ky.) Jalen Ashby are the Mid-South Conference Football Players of the Week, conference officials announced on Monday.
The weekly honor is the second straight for Robinson while DeLeon and Ashby earn their first weekly award of the season.
Robinson had a near-perfect day in the Eagles’ 61-34 win over Union to earn Mid-South Offensive Player of the Week.
The South Pittsburg, Tennessee, senior quarterback connected on 21 of his 25 passes for 410 yards. Robinson also racked up 55 yards on seven rushing attempts.
Robinson completed the game with six touchdown passes and two rushing scores -- running his touchdown total to 13 over the last two weeks.
Robinson leads the Mid-South Conference and the NAIA averaging 392.3 yards of total offense per game. He is second in both the conference and nation averaging 327.3 passing yards per game.
No. 10-ranked Faulkner improves to 3-0 on the season with last week’s win. The Eagles travel to Reinhardt (Ga.) on Saturday in Waleska, Georgia.
DeLeon tied a Campbellsville program record for most sacks in a game with four in the Tigers’ 20-7 win over Webber International (Fla.) to claim MSC Defensive Player of the Week.
The Knob Lick, Ky., senior linebacker finished with seven solo tackles -- including five tackles for a loss -- in the win. DeLeon helped the Tiger defense hold the Warriors to just 94 rushing yards -- more than 65 yards below their season rushing average.
DeLeon is tied for the conference and national lead with a two sacks per game average. He is second in the MSC and the NAIA with four sacks this season. DeLeon’s 10 tackles per game average is tied for fourth in the Mid-South.
Campbellsville improves to 1-1 this season with last week’s win. The Tigers host Bethel (Tenn.) on Saturday in Campbellsville.
Ashby returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in the loss to Faulkner to earn Mid-South Special Teams Player of the Week.
The Tallahassee, Fla., freshman wide receiver, finished seven yards shy of the program record for most kickoff return yards in a game. Ashby ended the game with 180 return yards in his five returns.
Ashby leads the Mid-South and is third in the NAIA with a 31.6 kickoff return average. He is second in the conference and seventh nationally with 253 kickoff return yards.
