Liberty redshirt freshman Caroline Douglas was named Big South Freshman of the Week for the third time.

Liberty redshirt freshman outside hitter Caroline Douglas was named Big South Volleyball Freshman of the Week, Monday. Douglas helped the Lady Flames to a 2-0 week, as Liberty clinched at least a share of its sixth straight Big South regular season championship.

Douglas, a native of Greenville, N.C., receives Freshman of the Week laurels for the third time this season, as she was also honored on Aug. 27 and Oct. 1.

Douglas averaged 4.62 kills per set during a pair of road victories over High Point and Campbell. On Friday at High Point, she recorded a career-high 26 kills in a 3-2 Lady Flames win. Douglas and teammate Lillie Happel (Oct. 26 at Radford) are now tied for the most kills in a single-match by a Big South player this season.

During Liberty's 3-0 sweep of Campbell, Saturday, Douglas registered 11 kills for her 22nd double-digit kill match this season. Douglas scored the match-winning kill in both wins last weekend. She leads the Big South in kills per set both overall (3.58 kps) and in conference play (4.02 kps).

The Lady Flames (20-7, 10-2 Big South) will compete in a pair of home matches to wrap up the regular season. Liberty will host UNC Asheville on Friday at 7 p.m. before taking on Gardner-Webb on Saturday at noon. Liberty will recognize its four senior volleyball players prior to Saturday's match.
