Westside alum Mollie Arnold named GAC Offensive Player of the Week

RUSSELLVILLE, AR (Harding) – Volleyball sophomore outside hitter Mollie Arnold received her first career Great American Conference Offensive Player of the Week honor on Tuesday in a release by the conference office.

Arnold, a Bono, Arkansas native, led the Lady Bisons to a 5-1 record last week. She had 90 kills (4.09 a set) and 79 digs (3.59 a set). Her best performance of the week came in a 3-2 win over Alabama-Huntsville, in which she totaled 18 kills on 43 attacks for a .279 percentage.
