Zacarias Ripoll, a 5-9 setter for Hunter College, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III Men's National Player of the Week. He earned the award for his solid play in helping the Hawks to two wins last week, including an upset of then-No.11 Philadelphia Biblical. Ripoll started the week with a double-double against the Crimson Eagles, scoring 51 assists and 11 kills in Hunter's 3-1 win. He also chipped in seven digs and four blocks in the match. Ripoll then lead the Hawks to a sweep of SUNY Institute of Technology in its final match of the regular season. Against the Wildcats, he handed out 22 assists, and collected nine kills, eight digs and three aces. For the week, he averaged 10.43 assists, 2.86 kills, and 2.14 digs per game. Ripoll is just the second player from Hunter to earn the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III Men's National Player of the Week award. The other player to earn the honor was Michael McFalls on March 21, 2003. The Hawks are coached by Ray Bello.
