NSU Volleyball: Warren named Southland Player of the Week

For the second week in a row, and the fourth time this season, Northwestern State volleyball picked up a Player of the Week honor from the Southland Conference.

Following a stellar offensive performance last week in two conference road wins, senior Alexis Warren was named the SLC Player of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.

The Cypress, Texas native hammered 38 kills in just two matches on just seven errors and a .402 hitting percentage with a 4.2 kill per set average. In the win at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi she recorded her first 20-kill match of the season and the first since her sophomore campaign. She had a season-best .425 hitting percentage in the match, committing just three errors in 40 attempts. It was her sixth kill-dig double-double of the season as she picked up 12 digs in the match.

She followed the effort Thursday with an 18-kill outing in the five-set victory at Incarnate Word on Saturday. It was the first time this season she hit better than .375 in consecutive matches and her second highest single-match kill total of the year.

On the season Warren has 192 kills, already surpassing last year’s total in just 18 matches. She is second on the team in total kills, behind the SLC leader Hannah Brister, and ranks seventh overall in the conference. NSU is one of just two schools with two players ranked in the top 10 in total kills in the conference.
