The Summit League named South Dakota State middle blocker Kelli Fiegen its offensive player of the week on Monday, after the senior led the Jackrabbits to a 2-2record over the weekend at the Hawkeye Challenge, earning all-tournament team honors in the process.
“Kelli continues to work hard being an attacking option for her setters time and time again,” head coach Phil McDaniel said. “She gave a solid effort this past weekend, and both Kelli, as well as our staff, have high expectations for her in her senior season.”
Fiegen garners her fourth career offensive player of the week award, and first of the season, after hitting at a .460 clip or better in all three of her complete matches, including two matches with only one error. She opened the season hitting .474 with 10 kills and one error in 19 attempts and six blocks in a 3-0 sweep of Southeast Missouri State, and ended the tournament with her most efficient match of the weekend against Valparaiso with 13 kills and one error in 21 attempts for a .571 hitting percentage.
On the weekend, Fiegencollected 41 kills, averaging 3.15 per set with a league-best .459 hitting percentage, adding 12 blocks in the process.
