    BRENTWOOD, TN — Eastern Illinois sophomore Marah Bradbury nabbed her third career Ohio Valley Conference 'Setter of the Week' award this week as she helped lead Panther volleyball to runner-up team honors at the KSU Golden Flashes Classic last weekend.
    The Decatur native dished out a season-high 53 assists and hit .833 (5-of-6, with zero errors) in EIU's four-set victory over Binghamton, as Eastern also swept Midwest foe Illinois-Chicago before falling to host Kent State in the championship match.
    For the weekend, Bradbury tallied 126 total assists for a 11.45 assists-per-set mark, while also hitting .560 off 14 kills and zero hitting errors, and as a team, Eastern hit .278 at the tourney.  All three of those marks easily out-paced the rest of the league setters.
    The Panthers finished the 2013 pre-OVC slate this past weekend with a 6-7 overall record, as EIU will now partake in league-only action over the course of the remaining 16 contests.
    As a freshman last fall, Bradbury twice earned the weekly setting honor en route to being named to the OVC All-Newcomer squad.
    Eastern begins official OVC play with a pair of road matches at Southeast Missouri and UT Martin this coming Friday and Saturday, respectively, before finally beginning home action versus instate rival SIU Edwardsville at 6 p.m. next Tuesday (Oct. 1).
