FC honors LCSC volleyball player Herrick
For the second straight week, a member of the Lewis-Clark State College women’s volleyball team has been named the Frontier Conference’s Player of the Week.
Conference officials announced on Monday that outside hitter Lauryn Herrick, a 5-foot-11 junior from Cypress, Calif., is the player of the week for her performance in three matches last week.
LCSC, 13-1 overall and ranked No. 11 in the NAIA, defeated Whitworth in nonleague play and then Montana Tech and Montana Western in FC action. All three matches were Warrior sweeps.
For the week, Herrick averaged 2.50 kills with a .415 hitting percentage. She also averaged 1.88 services aces per game.
With LCSC recording the three sweeps, Herrick’s playing time was reduced, but that didn’t stop her from having a monster match against Montana Western. In the three games, Herrick had nine service aces, just three shy of tying the school record, along with nine kills and two block assists. She hit .600 in the match.
Earlier in the week she had seven kills, two aces and 1.5 blocks in a win against Montana Tech, and then played in only two sets in the sweep against Whitworth, but still managed to hit .375 with four service aces.
A week earlier, junior outside hitter Deddiy Alaimaleata earned the honor for LCSC.
The Warriors, leading the FC at 4-0, play both Montana State-Northern and the University of Great Falls this week on the road. The Warriors are in Havre, Mont., for a 6 p.m. match on Friday, and then turn around and play in Great Falls on Saturday at 2 p.m. Both MSU-Northern and Great Falls are 2-1 in conference play.
