Adam Tumino, Editor-in-Chief

Eastern senior outside hitter Laurel Bailey was given a conference honor to wrap up her career at Eastern.

She was named All-OVC second team Wednesday after a season in which she ranked fifth in the OVC in kills per set (3.66) and fourth in points per set (4.15).

Bailey was the only senior this season for the Panthers, who went 2-14 in the conference-only spring season.

She appeared in 14 matches for the Panthers and recorded double-figures in kills 13 times.

She had a season-high 21 kills on March 7 against Tennessee State and 15 digs March 1 against Austin Peay.

Bailey became just the 29th player in program history to reach 1,000 career digs, a feat she accomplished March 8 against Tennessee State.
