COLUMBIA, Ky. – Sarah Cruz is the Mid-South Conference Volleyball Attacker of the Week for a third consecutive week, conference officials announced on Monday.
The Olomouc, Czech Republic, freshman outside hitter, helped the Blue Raiders win all three matches last week — all against Mid-South Conference foes.
Cruz averaged 4.4 kills per set and hit .308 during the week in road wins over Pikeville (Ky.), Cumberlands (Ky.) and Life (Ga.).
She began the week with 14 kills and a block in the Blue Raiders 3-0 win over Pikeville. Two days later, Cruz recorded her 11th straight double-digit kill match of the season with 17 kills in a sweep over Cumberlands. She concluded the week with nine kills in a 3-0 win at Life.
Cruz leads the MSC in hitting percentage (.362) and ranks second in the conference in kills per set (4.1). She is 14th in the NAIA in hitting percentage and 18th in kills per set.
The fourth-ranked Blue Raiders host Mid-South Conference foe Campbellsville (Ky.) at 6:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday at Biggers Sports Center.
