PLYMOUTH, N.H. - For the second straight week, the top hitter on the Plymouth State College volleyball team has been named Player of the Week by the Little East Conference.
Junior outside hitter Carin LaValley (Northfield, N.H.) was selected LEC Co-Player of the Week on Monday. She has actually received an LEC honor three consecutive weeks, having earned the Player of the Week honor outright last Monday and a selection to the Honor Roll two weeks ago.
A two-time All-LEC First Team selection, LaValley has now been a recipient of a LEC weekly honor nine times in her career.
A 5'6" co-captain, LaValley helped PSC split four matches at the Amherst Classic last Friday and Saturday in Amherst, Mass. She led the Panthers to victories over Rhode Island College and St. Lawrence University, and was PSC's selection to the All-Tournament Second Team. LaValley finished the tournament with 47 kills, 34 digs, seven service aces, and a .372 attack percentage. She ranks among the LEC leaders in kills (3.97/game), digs (3.16), aces (0.94) and attack percentage (.381).
Plymouth State, 7-3 overall and 2-0 in conference play, plays home matches Monday (Sept. 24) against Endicott (7:00 p.m.) and Wednesday (Sept. 26) against LEC foe UMass Boston (6:00 p.m.).
