From the Serve
Sophomore outside hitter Chloe Stitt was named to the Dunn Hospitality Invitational all-tourney team after putting forth a dominant 11-kill performance in an APSU sweep of host Evansville.
Junior libero Ginny Gerig also earned all-tourney recognition in Evansville, posting a team-best 30 digs (3.75/set) in the two-match event.
Senior setter Kristen Stucker has been named the OVC Setter of the Week twice in the season’s first three weeks. Her 361 assists (11.65/set) this season have moved her into fourth on APSU’s career assists list.
Sophomore outside hitter Brooke Moore has posted double-digit kills in each of her last four matches, averaging 3.47 kills per set while posting a .264 attack percentage.
The 2018 Govs 6-0 start was two wins shy of tying the 1984 team’s record 8-0 unbeaten start to a season. They now target the 2010 team’s 11-1 start.
It is the second consecutive season APSU has been picked second in the poll.
However, APSU was the top pick of more than half the voters in that preseason poll.
The Govs 14 first-place votes outpaced preseason favorite Murray State’s 10 first-place votes.
