Newberry, who already owns the NCAA record for digs in a season (942), broke the NCAA’s mark for digs in a career on Oct. 8 against Samford.
The senior captured the record, which was previously set at 2,791 by Minnesota’s Paula Gentile, with her 15th dig during the second set of a 3-0 loss to the Bulldogs. Newberry’s record now stands at 2,977 with seven games left to play in the regular season.
The Chattanooga native currently leads the nation in digs (578) and in digs per set (6.49).
