Frontier Conference honors LCSC's Dlouhy
Lewis-Clark State College junior middle blocker Demi Dlouhy has been named the Frontier Conference’s Player of the Week for volleyball after leading the Warriors to a pair of victories last week.
The 6-foot-1 transfer from Montana State University had a season-high 13 kills and a .765 hitting percentage in the Warriors’ 25-16, 25-20, 25-21 sweep of Westminster in Salt Lake City on Friday night to hand the Griffins their first home loss of the season. The 13 kills is a three-game match high by a LCSC player this season. Her hitting percentage is the second highest total by a Warrior this year.
She also finished with a service ace, three digs, and two block assists.
Dlouhy, who is from Idaho Falls, also had six kills and hit .600 in the Warriors’ 25-20, 25-13, 25-18 nonleague win over Whitman College in Walla Walla. She also had two digs and two block assists in the match.
Dlouhy is the second Warrior to earn the honor this season. Two weeks ago, senior All American Anile Clemente was feted by the conference.
The Warriors close out the regular season this week with a pair of home matches. LCSC plays host to Rocky Mountain on Thursday at 7 p.m. and free tickets are available at area Happy Day Restaurants while they last. It’s also Pack the House Night and fans are encouraged to wear red, white or blue to the match. On Saturday, the Warriors face conference-leading Carroll at 2 p.m. All tickets to the match are $1 and there will be a special pre-function at Southway Pizzeria & Deli starting at 12:30 p.m.
If LCSC, ranked No. 24 in the NAIA, can win both of its matches, it will win the conference title for the third straight season.
