Andrea Morrone, a senior setter from Lewis University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. She earned the award for helping lead her team to wins over two opponents last week, including a 3-0 upset of then-No. 17 Indianapolis, which snapped the Greyhounds' 25-match win streak. In the Flyers first match of the week, a 3-0 sweep of St. Joseph's, Morrone played in only two games and had 23 assists while leading Lewis to a .233 team hitting percentage. She also added 14 digs, one ace and one total block in the win. She followed that up with 48 assists while leading the Flyers to a .333 team hitting percentage in the win over UIndy. She also scored seven kills and nine digs in the contest. For the week, Morrone averaged 14.20 assists, 4.60 digs and 2.00 kills per game, while leading her team to a .282 hitting percentage. Morrone is only the second athlete from Lewis to earn Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. The previous winner was Katie Gilman on Sept. 16, 2002. Lewis is coached by Lorelee Smith.
