Nebraska Wesleyan University freshman setter Caitlin Anderson has been selected as the Association of Division III Independents volleyball Player-of-the-Week.
Anderson (Plattsmouth, Neb.) had a triple-double in NWU’s victory over Morningside College last Wednesday (Sept. 29) giving the Prairie Wolves their first win over the Mustangs since 2004. Anderson had 35 assists, 20 digs and 10 kills with an amazing .667 hitting percentage. She also added a service ace and two blocks for NWU.
The Plattsmouth H.S., graduate had made an immediate impact for the NWU volleyball team in her first season. She has taken over the starting setter duties and leads the team with 343 assists. Anderson ranks sixth in the Great Plains Athletic Conference in assists averaging 6.24 per set.
Nebraska Wesleyan, ranked #21 in the AVCA/DIII Poll, is 15-2 on the season, which is the best start to a season in school history. The Prairie Wolves have three road conference matches this week playing at Concordia on Wednesday, at Dordt on Friday and at Dakota Wesleyan on Saturday.
