Alli Alberts, a senior outside hitter from then-No. 4 Washington University in St. Louis, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week after helping her team to a 4-0 record last week, three of them coming in sweeping fashion. In the Bears first match, a 3-0 win over Webster, Alberts scored a double-double with 16 kills and 13 digs in the match. She followed that up with a 14-kill, nine-dig, two-ace, four block performance in Washington U's 3-1 win over Rochester. In her next match, Alberts put away nine kills, while getting 15 digs, two aces and a block in a sweep of Case Western. She ended her week on a high note, getting 11 kills, eight digs and a block in a 3-0 win over Carnegie Mellon. For the week, Alberts averaged 3.85 kills, 3.46 digs, and 4.50 points per set. Alberts is the 21st athlete from Washington University to receive the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week award. The last Bear to earn the award was Emilie Walk on Oct. 2, 2006. Washington University is coached by Rich Luenemann, the 2007 AVCA Division III National Coach of the Year.
