Powers Grabs Initial SAC Volleyball Player of the Week Honor for 2007
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba junior Melissa Powers, of Bennett, NC, has been named the initial South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the 2007 season. She helped the Catawba Indians to four wins in the season-opening Moretz Sports Invitational, hosted by Lenoir-Rhyne. It marks the second time the Powers has earned the honor as she was selected once last season.
Powers, a former standout at North Moore High School, recorded 73 kills over four matches as Catawba swept to 3-0 wins against Texas A&M-Kingsville, Belmont Abbey, Queens and St. Andrews. The 5-10, middle blocker posted double-figure kills in all four matches and hit at 47.2 percent. She had a high of 21 kills against St. Andrews with just one error in 35 swings. For the tournament, Powers also added 11 blocks, 11 digs and five aces.
The SAC Volleyball Player of the Week is determined by a vote of the sports information directors of the league.
