The Female Athlete of the Year is…

Fairmont State volleyball standout Mackenzie Harrison has been named the Mountain East Conference Female Athlete of the Year for 2017-18.

Harrison was selected as the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) National Player of the Year after leading the country with 710 kills — 105 more kills than any player in the country this season. She also averaged 5.87 kills and 4.03 digs per set on her way to being named the Mountain East Conference and D2CAA Atlantic Region Player of the Year. A three-time first team All-MEC selection, she leaves Fairmont State as the school’s all-time leader in career kills (1,968) and kills in a season (710). She earned All-America honors from the D2CCA and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).

The MEC Female Athlete of the Year is selected by a vote of institutional administrators and the conference office.

Charleston’s Dan Stratford and Glenville State’s Kim Stephens were recognized yesterday as the 2017-18 Mountain East Conference Coaches of the Year.
