No real surprise but you just never know. National award given out tomorrow.
Brook Sedore was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Player of the Week following his performance in the Rainbow Warriors’ two-match sweep of UCLA over the weekend.
Sedore, a junior opposite from Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, averaged 5.11 kills per set and hit .427 during the series. He matched his season-high of 24 kills on .452 hitting in the team’s four-set victory on Friday and tallied 22 kills, hitting .400, in the five-set win on Saturday. He also served an ace each night, and combined for seven digs and three blocks. Prior to the weekend, Sedore had only one 20-plus kill match this season.
For the season, Sedore leads the team with a 3.62 kill average while hitting at a .320 clip. He also leads the team with 18 service aces.
He is the first Rainbow Warrior to be honored by the conference this season and it marks the second weekly of his career.
