SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Volleyball Player of the Week for September 5, 2016.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – MARY LAKE, FR., LIB – BYU
Freshman libero Mary Lake's defense helped propel No. 10 BYU to three wins over the weekend to capture the Sports Imports D.C. Koehl Classic title.
In a sweep of Wyoming, Lake contributed a team-high 10 digs, an ace and three assists. Later that day in another sweep against LIU Brooklyn, she added another team-high 13 digs, a match-high three aces and four assists.
Then, against tournament host No. 11 Ohio State, Lake helped BYU win a five-set thriller in come-from-behind fashion. After falling behind two sets, Lake's 38 digs helped advance the Cougars to victory. Her 38 digs were a career and match high and were the second-most digs ever collected in a match in BYU rally-scoring era history.
For her help in the tournament sweep, Lake was named the Most Valuable Player of the invitational and added to the all-tournament team.
