In the win over the Bears on Oct. 16, the senior averaged 5.67 kills per set on a .333 hit percentage and posted six digs and an assist.  The next day at Brevard, Fairley posted 5.33 kills per set to go along with a .314 average at the net.  She also chipped in six digs, one block and an assist in the win.
