No. 3 Davionna DiSalvatore
Palm Harbor, Fla.
Major: Sociology

Senior Davionna DiSalvatore has been a mainstay for the Buckeye backrow since her freshman year and her role as the backbone for the stingy Buckeye defense has continued this season. She currently leads No. 13 Ohio State with 170 digs on the year and her 3.78 digs per set average places her among the top 10 in the Big Ten. In the team’s opening weekend, Aug. 30-31, DiSalvatore recorded her 1,000th career dig and became only the 15th player in program history to reach that mark. The libero ranks 11th overall with 1,131 digs in her career.
