Former Etiwanda standout earns college honor

Former Etiwanda high School standout Marquis Mora, now a junior at Cal State Los Angeles, has been named Molten/California Collegiate Athletic Association Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 3-9.

Mora led Cal State L.A. to a pair of CCAA wins over Cal State Monterey Bay and Cal State East Bay. In eight sets, she totaled 45 kills, eight digs, 13 total blocks and 53 points (6.6 per set), while posting a .567 hitting percentage.

Mora had a career-high 28 kills and a hitting percentage of .765 to lead the Golden Eagles to a four-set win over Cal State Monterey Bay on Friday. Her 28 kills are tied for the conference single-match high this season and are tied for eighth on Cal State L.A.’s all-time list. Her .765 hitting percentage is second all-time in program history (minimum of 15 attacks) and the highest ever for a player with more than 20 kills and 30 attacks. She also had seven blocks and totaled 32.5 points (8.1 per set) in the game.

On Saturday, Mora had 17 kills and six blocks to lead the Golden Eagles past Cal State East Bay. She hit at a .364 clip and her final two kills got the Golden Eagles to match point and then ended the contest. She had 20.5 points in the match.

Cal State L.A. returns to action on Friday when it travels to UC San Diego for a 7 p.m. contest.
