CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference announced its weekly volleyball awards on Monday. Redshirt freshman Jenny Ingle (Ludlow Falls, Ohio) was named the MAC East Division Offensive Player of the Week. It is the first weekly MAC award of her career.
Ingle was Miami's leading offensive attacker with an impressive .478 hitting percentage on the weekend. She had a total of 26 kills in two matches, including a career-high tying 15 kills in only three sets in a win against Toledo on Friday. In that match she hit .636. She added another 11 kills in a dramatic five-set victory over Ball State on Saturday. Ingle made only four attack errors in 46 attempts on the weekend and when you add in her blocking scored 31.5 points, an average of 3.94 per set.
It is the second straight week that a Miami player has earned this award, as sophomore Meg Riley won it last Monday.
Miami looks to keep its three-game winning streak going as it hits the road for a pair of matches this week. On Friday, the RedHawks travel to Ohio to take on the Bobcats at 7 p.m. They will then head to Kent State on Saturday for a 7 p.m. contest.
