06_volleyball_0055

Catawba College junior Melissa Powers, of Bennett, N.C., has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA NCAA II National Player of the Week as well as the South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the week ending Sept. 9.   Powers helped the Catawba Indians to four wins last week at the Chatham Orthopedics Classic.  It marks the first time a Catawba player has been named the AVCA National Player of the Week and it is the second time in three weeks that Powers has taken home the weekly league honor.

A former standout at North Moore High School, Powers posted 20 or more kills in three of the wins with a high of 23 in a three-game victory over host Armstrong Atlantic.  Against Francis Marion, she had 20 kills and eight blocks then finished the tournament with 21 kills in a sweep of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras. 

For the week, Powers totaled 76 kills and had a .332 hitting percentage.  She added 18 blocks, nine digs and an ace.  The middle blocker is averaging 5.4 kills and 1.2 blocks per game this season in helping Catawba to an 11-1 record.
