San Francisco's Haley Carroll won the weekly honor for volleyball, Loyola Marymount's Max Young won it for men's soccer, while Portland's Michelle Enyeart and Santa Clara's Jordan Angeli shared the weekly honor for women's soccer.
Carroll led the Dons to a 3-0 record and the tournament championship at the 2009 Hornet Invitational. The Dons posted sweeps against tournament host Sacramento State, Fresno State and fought back for a 3-2 triumph against Alabama.
Carroll played a key role for the Dons and set the program digs record in the process. The senior blew past previous record holder Brynn Maurer (2004-07) with 24 against Sacramento State and captured tournament MVP honors, averaging an impressive 5.73 digs per set (63 total) to go along with 0.55 aces. With 20 regular season matches remaining in her final season in the Green and Gold, Carroll has accumulated 1,752 digs. Carroll recorded 25 digs to go along with five assists and three aces against the Crimson Tide.
Making his first career start, redshirt freshman Young shutout #6 UC Santa Barbara for over 86 minutes in helping LMU to a 2-1 upset win away to the Gauchos on Sunday. Young made eight saves, including five in a second half in which LMU was out-shot 11-2, to preserve the victory after the Lions had taken a 2-0 halftime lead.
Enyeart recorded her first career hat trick in Friday's 4-1 win over No. 11 Illinois and then scored the game-winner in Sunday's 2-0 win against Miami. She was named the Nike Portland Invitational's Most Outstanding Offensive Player. Enyeart also moved into fifth place on UP's career points list (111) and seventh on the school's career goals scored list (40).
Jordan Angeli scored the game winner in Santa Clara's huge upset victory over #5 Notre Dame. Notre Dame commited a foul about 40 yards out from the goal, and was preparing for a flighted service from senior Kiki Bosio. Bosio instead passed to Angeli, who unleased a 35-yard rocket that streaked by Irish goalkeeper Nikki Weiss into the upper portion of the net. Angeli was voted MVP of the Santa Clara Classic.
