MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Sophomore Taylor Svehla (Cumming) of the Georgia College Volleyball team (17-13) was named Bobcat Athlete of the Week for her efforts during the week ending Nov. 13.

Svehla had her best match in the three-set loss against Lander University Saturday when she notched 15 kills against the Bearcats.
