NORFOLK, Va. – Alyssa Miner of Illinois Tech women's volleyball has been named the United States Collegiate Athletic Association's Player of the Week for action between October 23 and October 29. The honor is Miner's first weekly award of the season.
The junior middle hitter had an incredible week. After a .500% hit percentage, nine-kill match in a sweep over Moody Bible on Tuesday, the Bartlett, Illinois native had an astounding 17-kill match with three solo blocks, four aces, and a .531 hit percentage in a 3-1 win over Earlham. She also tallied 11 kills with four assisted blocks in another Saturday match (3-0 loss to Bluffton).
Miner and the Scarlet Hawks are in action tonight at 6:00 p.m. central time at St. Mary's College of Indiana. Tech will also learn of its fate for the USCAA Tournament, as the field will be announced today at 4:00 p.m. on the USCAA website and YouTube channel.
