Jane is NESCAC Player of the Week!!

Congratulations to our very own Jane Handel, who was named the NESCAC Volleyball Player of the Week last week! This is very exciting, as the competition for this honor is very tough! I don't think Middlebury has had a Player of the week for, well, too long?! Here is what the write-up said:

"Middlebury College women’s volleyball player Jane Handel (Evanston, Ill.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. Handel continued an impressive rookie season by having a steady week for a Panther team that went 4-0 and won the Silver Bracket of the Hall of Fame Invitational Tournament. Handel averaged 3.70 kills and 3.30 digs per set while hitting at a .366 rate to go along with five aces and a pair of blocks. The Panthers will play their final home match of the season on Wednesday, October 29th against Williams at 7:00 p.m."

Way to go Jane. As I told the team, this is an honor not only for Jane, but for the team as well, because as any good hitter knows, you have to have good defense, and a good setter to be the best hitter you can be, so way to go TEAM too!! BEAT WILLIAMS!!
