ST. LOUIS -- After a monumental weekend, the Saluki volleyball team picked up two Missouri Valley Conference player of the week honors, the conference announced Monday. Freshmen Hannah Kaminsky and Meg Viggars were named the MVC's Freshman of the Week and the MVC's Defensive Player of the Week, respectively.
Viggars, a native Stoke-on-Trent, England, was named the Valley's Defensive Player of the Week after her clutch performances in both Saluki upsets of UNI and Drake this past weekend. On Friday's upset of UNI, Viggars recorded a double-double, compiling 12 kills, 22 digs and four block assists. She finished the weekend with 27 digs to average 3.86 per set and seven block assists to average one per set.
Kaminsky, a native of Woodridge, Ill., was an offensive force in Southern's two wins on Friday and Saturday. The freshman setter dished out an impressive 91 assists to average 13 per set. Kaminsky also added 19 digs and two block assists. On Friday's match against the Panthers, Kaminsky recorded a team-high 53 assists and 12 digs.
The Salukis (15-12, 10-5 MVC) return home this Fri., Nov. 15, to square off against the Evansville Purple Aces (8-17, 3-11 MVC).
