For the third time in the nine offerings, Georgetown College volleyball's Caraline Maher earns Mid-South Conference Player of the Week announced Monday afternoon by the league office.
The junior averaged 3.5 kills, amassing a .376 attacking percentage in five matches this past week. The middle hitter led the Tigers over RV Viterbo, No. 10 Embry-Riddle and No. 13 Bellevue. GC also defeated St. Catharine. The lone loss of the week came at the hands of No. 1 University of Texas at Brownsville. Even in that match, Georgetown did something very few teams have done this season, take a set.
"She had a really great week," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "Caraline is just so explosive and we run a lot of our offense through her. She is so solid."
For her efforts she also earned Boneyard Brawl All-Tournament team honors. She tallied double-digit kills in the four wins – 16 over Bellevue, 14 over Embry-Riddle, 13 over St. Catharine and 10 against Viterbo.
Against the No. 1 Ocelots, the Cincinnati, Ohio native had eight kills and five assisted blocks. For the week she had 18 blocks, 18 digs and five service aces.
Maher leads the MSC with 348 kills and is sixth with 2.9 kills per set average. She ranks second in the conference and eighth in the NAIA with a .394 attacking percentage.
