Volleyball boasts two players of the week

September 13, 2012

By Stephanie Metzger

The Cleveland State University Vikings women’s volleyball team boasted two more Horizon League Players of the Week as the team went 2-1 over the weekend in the CSU Invitational.

The Vikings posted a 3-0 victory over the Eastern Kentucky Colonels before falling to the Oakland University Grizzlies in five sets on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Seniors Amanda Medvetz and Marie Frease were named to the CSU All-Tournament Team as Frease led the Vikings in offense against Eastern Kentucky, and Medvetz added 14 digs.

Frease totaled 14 kills with a .565 hitting percentage and junior Annie Djukic posted a team-leading 34 assists.

On Friday, the Vikings beat the University at Buffalo Bulls in four sets with a 3-1 victory.
Medvetz was named the Horizon League Defensive Player of the Week while Frease was deemed the Horizon League Offensive Player of the Week.

Through four matches last week, Medvetz posted 81 digs, including a career-high 33 digs against Oakland.

Frease recorded a .480 hitting percentage last week in addition to 51 kills and 16 blocks. Her 19 kills against Oakland on Saturday was a career-high, and she posted double-digit kills in all three weekend matches.

CSU coach Chuck Voss accredited his team’s hard work and persistence for their win on Friday.

“I liked how we persevered and just continued to push and play hard,” Voss said. “Buffalo’s a really good, young, athletic team and they did some things that exposed us a little bit, but we just kept working hard, and good things happen when we do that.”

Voss also noted the team’s formidable defense as part of their success so far.

“I thought our defense has been huge all year and they really made a lot of big plays,” Voss said. “They made some spectacular plays and when we do that, we’ve got to do a little better job of transitioning to get better swings to attack back at the opponent.”

Next, the Vikings head to Morgantown, W. Va. for the West Virginia Invitational this weekend.
