Tuesday, September 06, 2011

MACON, Ga. – After a stellar performance in the inaugural Lipscomb Invitational last weekend, Lipscomb middle blocker Katie Rose has been named the Atlantic Sun Volleyball Player of the Week as announced on Tuesday.

Along with earning All-Tournament honors, Rose set school records for service aces in a match (7) and solo blocks (8).  Rose also set a career high with nine blocks against Arkansas State.  Rose hit .426 on the weekend averaging 11.66 kills per match as the Lady Bisons went 2-1.

The weekly award is the first for the Lexington, Ky., native, who was also an All-Atlantic Sun preseason team selection.

The Lady Bisons continue home play Tuesday night with a non-conference tilt against Western Kentucky at 6:30 p.m. at Allen Arena.
