Junior outside hitter Allie Frappier of Pomona-Pitzer has been named the Division III National Player of the Week by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.
Frappier broke school record for kills in a match with 40 in a four-set win over CMS on Saturday, after tallying 25 in a 3-1 win at Occidental on Friday. The 40 kills eclipsed the previous school record of 35, which was set by Joanne Nielson in 1990.
In addition, the 40 kills tied for the sixth-highest total in NCAA Division III history for a four-set match, as well as tying the record during the 25-point era (set length was dropped from 30 to 25 in 2008). She also pushed her average this season to 6.19 kills per set, leading all of college volleyball (all divisions) and leads Division III by a huge margin (nobody else averages 5.0 or more).
Frappier is in her first season with the Sagehens after transferring from Yale, where she was an All-Ivy League selection as a freshman in 2011 before missing last season with an injury. She has 427 kills this season, which already ranks as the second-highest single-season total in school history.
She has helped the Sagehens to a 17-7 record, 9-4 in the SCIAC.
The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps volleyball team dropped four spots and is ranked No. 25 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association NCAA Division III poll released today.
The Athenas (12-3) wee dealt a pair of losses, one of those to No. 4 Cal Lutheran (17-1). The more unexpected loss was a 3-0 setback at the hands of local rival Pomona-Pitzer.
Calvin (18-0) is ranked No. 1, followed by Hope, St. Thomas (Minn.), Cal Lutheran and Emory (Ga.).
CMS hosts University of Redlands at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
