BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Kentucky junior Darian Mack was named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team, the league announced on Wednesday.

She has also spent time bell ringing for the Salvation Army, and has made blankets for Kentucky Children’s Hospital patients. Furthermore, she is a mainstay as a counselor for the highly-popular Kentucky volleyball camps.
