Emily Schroeder, a senior outside hitter for Wayne State College in Nebraska, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week.  In three matches last week in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Tournament, Schroeder tallied two triple-doubles, including one against top-10 challenger Southwest Minnesota State.  In the tournament's opening round against Northern State, Schroeder collected her only non-triple-double of the week, tallying 16 kills, 13 digs and six total blocks, as Wayne State advanced with a sweep of the Wolves.  The Wildcats' semifinal date was with then-No. 9 Southwest Minnesota State, where Schroeder landed 16 kills, tallied 17 digs and added 11 total blocks, helping her team to the finals with a 3-1 upset.  Against Minnesota State-Moorhead, Schroeder led her team to its first NSIC Volleyball Tournament championship, racking up 16 more kills, 15 digs and 13 blocks in a 3-1 win.  Named to the All-Tournament team, Schroeder averaged 4.36 kills, 4.09 digs, 2.73 blocks and 5.91 points per game.  Schroeder, the only player from Wayne State (Neb.) to win the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week award, has now garnered the honor twice, last winning in October of 2006.  The Wildcats are coached by Scott Kneifl.
