Freshman setter Dana Faught, who came up just short in a fierce preseason camp battle for the lead setter spot, has steadily impressed the Knights' coaches in practice and earned more playing time. Faught, who has now made two starts and got the nod in the Knights' most recent match, set new-career highs with 34 assists and 8 digs in a five-set thriller against Fairfield.
A native of Round Rock, Texas, Faught had no idea that she would be returning home to play less than a month into her first semester of college. With all of her friends and family planning to be in attendance, Faught will look to impress against the Knights' only two nationally-ranked opponents and only nationally televised match of the season.
While she has excelled on the court, Faught has fallen victim to the Florida humidity and the summer rain showers on numerous occasions thus far off the court. She does not even bother doing her hair in the mornings anymore because she knows the humidity and the rain will likely just ruin it.
