Bookmark and Share

LEXINGTION, Ky. - Southwest Minnesota State junior middle blocker Devin Diedrich has been named Sports Imports/AVCA Division II Women Player of the Week. She earned the award for her efforts in the Mustangs three Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference wins.

Diedrich, a native of Braham, Minn., earned the award after propelling the Mustangs to a trio of Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference wins.  Diedrich kicked off action with a 22-kill, six-block, five-dig outing in SMSU's 3-2 victory over Augustana (SD). She followed by drilling a career-high 28 kills, to go along with two blocks, two digs and one ace in the Mustangs' sweep of Winona State.

Diedrich wrapped up the week's action by contributing 14 kills, five blocks, two digs and an ace in a sweep of Upper Iowa. For the week, Diedrich averaged 5.73 kills, 1.36 blocks and 6.68 points per set, while hitting an efficient .376.

This marks the second time this season and third time in school history that a Southwest Minnesota State player has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Division II Player of the Week honors, the last being Mary Groth's nod on Oct. 5. Megan Wendoff was the first when she earned the distinction on Aug. 28, 2006.

Diedrich was also named the NSIC Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, for the third time this season.

The Mustangs will continue conference play this weekend when they travel to Mankato, Minn. on Oct. 30 to take on No. 16 Minnesota State at 4 p.m.

Southwest Minnesota State University, located in Marshall, Minn.,   competes at the NCAA Division II level and is a member of the Northern   Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
