Huntington University sophomore Ariene Butler garnered this week’s volleyball defensive player of the week honor as announced by the league office earlier this afternoon.

The 5-3 libero anchored the backline last week to guide the Foresters to two wins against a loss which included a 3-2 upset over Grace Saturday afternoon of HU’s homecoming. She tallied a career-best 32 digs in Huntington’s 3-2 win over Goshen on Friday on her way to racking up 73 digs for the week to average 5.6 digs per set.

Butler currently ranks 15th in the NAIA in total digs with 471 and 5th in digs per set (4.5) among her league peers.

The Foresters (9-16, 5-8) take a break from conference play to compete in the Cornerstone/Aquinas Classic this coming weekend.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 296 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
