Benedict College took three of the four weekly awards. Three Benedict College Lady Tigers, including Bahamians Terae Sweeting and Je'Nae Saunders, earned weekly awards after leading their team to a 2-0 win/loss record last week in SIAC competition.

Lady Tigers junior outside hitter Sweeting was the SIAC Offensive Player of the Week after leading the Lady Tigers to a five-set victory over Claflin University and Paine College last week. Sweeting's teammates, sophomore libero Saunders and senior setter Ashley Jackson, were named SIAC Defensive Player of the Week and Setter of the Week, respectively.
