OXFORD, Ohio – For their performances last week senior quarterback Andrew Hendrix and sophomore volleyball middle hitter Paige Hill are Miami’s Athletes of the Week connected by Frontier Communications for the week of Aug. 25-31.
Hendrix, making his first start since his senior year of high school, completed 24-of-49 passes for 318 yards and three touchdowns in a near upset over Marshall last Saturday afternoon. The fifth-year senior added 46 yards on the ground to finish the contest with 364 yards of total offense.
This is the first time in Hendrix’s career he has earned Miami’s Male Athlete of the Week honor.
Hill was the offensive leader for Miami, finishing with 34 kills in three matches, an average of 2.83 per set. She made only four attack errors in 69 attempts for an impressive hitting percentage of .435. Her performance earned her a spot on the Panther Invitational All-Tournament Team. Hill also had 10 blocks in the three matches, including two solo, contributing a total of 40.0 points on the weekend. She had nine kills and a .562 hitting percentage in a win over North Dakota State on Friday, and followed it up with nine more in the win over Robert Morris later that day. The next day against Milwaukee, Hill was one shy of her career high with 16 kills, and had five blocks (one solo, four assisted).
This is the second time in Hill’s career she has earned Miami’s Female Athlete of the Week honor. She previously won it for the week of Aug. 26-Sept. 1, 2013.
