Blue Angels Volleyball Players Win Conference Honors
The volleyball team continues to rack up accolades, with CNR's Meghan King winning Player of the Week honors and Indigo Flowers being named Rookie of the Week.
King was recognized by the Association of Division III Independents and the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference for leading the Blue Angels to a 3-1 record for the week. She averaged 3.13 kills and 3.6 digs per set while registering two double-doubles and nine service aces. The outside hitter from New City tallied 10 or more kills in CNR's three wins, including 17 against Puchase College. She also recorded 10 or more digs three times, highlighted by a career-high 20-dig effort vs. The King's College.
The three wins enabled CNR to post a five-match win streak, the team's longest since the 2011 season.
This is the second consecutive week King has earned HVIAC Player of the Week Honors. Last season, King earned HVIAC Player of the Week recognition twice and AD3I Player of the Week accolades three times en route to being named All-Conference by both organizations.
First-year setter Indigo Flowers was named Rookie of the Week by HVIAC for averaging a team-best 7 assists and 0.93 service aces per set. The Castro Valley, California, resident handed out a career-best 39 assists in the team's win over Purchase College and recorded her second double-double of the season in the win over The King's College, registering 31 assists and 14 digs. Flowers also excelled in the service game, posting multi-ace matches in each of the team's four matches, with a high of six vs. Purchase College.
This is the second time in the last three weeks that a Blue Angel has been recognized with HVIAC Rookie of the Week honors, as Marissa Armstrong received the award on September 4.
