Big Rapids, Mich. - Senior outside hitter Ashley Huntey (Stanwood/Morley-Stanwood) of the 2011 Ferris State women's volleyball team will be honored prior to this Saturday's (Oct. 22) match against Michigan Tech as a result of registering her 1,000th career dig in FSU's most recent home contest.

This season, Huntey has earned Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Player of The Week honors three times while accumulating 245 kills and 189 digs.
