Wins Award For The First Time
LANCASTER, PA – Freshman outside hitter Kristin Lee (Dayton, MD/River Hill) has been named the Centennial Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the week of September 17-23. It is the first time that Lee has won the conference's player of the week award.
Lee averaged 4.73 kills and 3.64 digs per set, while totaling a pair of double-doubles for the Shorewomen this week as the squad went 2-1. She had career-bests of 24 kills and 19 digs, the 24 kills leading all players, against Gettysburg as WC beat Gettysburg for the first time since 1977, a span of 33 matches. Her 19 digs tied for tops on the team against the Bullets. She snapped a 13-13 tie in the fifth set with a kill to put WC up for good at 14-13. Versus Bryn Mawr, she had 15 kills to lead all players, hitting .344, and added 12 digs in a three-set victory. Lee also added three assists in the win. Versus Stevenson, she racked up 13 kills, nine digs and a personal-best three blocks.
She is the first player for Washington to win this award since junior setter Lauren White (Huntingtown, MD/Huntingtown) won co-player of the week during her freshman season on October 12, 2010 and is the first Shorewoman to win the player of the week award outright since Laura Shand on September 8, 2004.
