Meeks and Young Earn SAC Volleyball Player of the Week Honors
ROCK HILL, SC -- After leading their team to an impressive 3-0 week, Catawba's Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) and Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA/Patrick Henry HS) are the recipients of the SAC weekly awards for week three. It was announced by the conference office on Monday.
Catawba's victories last week over Tusculum, Mars Hill and Lenoir-Rhyne improved its record to 9-2 overall. The Indians are off to a 4-1 start in the SAC, just behind undefeated Wingate in the league standings.
Meeks, the Player of the Week, had matches of eight, 16 and 22 kills last week, hitting .302 in Catawba's three contests. Her performance against Tusculum was especially impressive, as the junior recorded 15 kills in the final three sets after helping the Indians rally from two sets down. She also added eight blocks on the week.
Young, the SAC Specialist of the Week, set a school record with 55 digs in Catawba's win over Tusculum. For the week, the junior libero totaled 102 digs, averaging nearly eight per-set. She also recorded two services aces against Lenoir-Rhyne and one against Tusculum.
