SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Senior middle hitter Laurel Abrahamson was named as the West Coast Conference Player of the Week after helping lead the 17th-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team to a 2-0 record this past week.
Abrahamson, a native of Bloomington, Minn., averaged 4.71 kills per game on an outstanding .459 hitting percentage, while also tallying 11 blocks on the week. In Friday's sweep over Pepperdine, Abrahamson posted 12 kills on 23 attempts to post a .391 attack percentage and in Saturday's 3-1 win over Loyola Marymount, Abrahamson led all players with her 21 kills on 38 attempts while only committing two attack errors to post a resounding .500 attack percentage. On the season, Abrahamson has 272 kills (3.78 kpg) and is hitting a conference-leading .395 attack percentage.
Abrahamson and the Toreros will return to action on Thursday as they host Portland in a 7 p.m. match inside the friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
