GREENVILLE, S.C. – Furman's Savannah Carnahan has been named the General Shale Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for all competition from March 27 – April 2. This is her fifth selection of the year.

The Paladins will travel to Knoxville, Tenn., April 11-13 to compete in the Tennessee Relays.
