|Kristen Guercio, a sophomore setter for SUNY Cortland, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week after leading the Red Dragons to a pair of wins last week. Guercio started things off with 30 assists and nine digs in a sweep of Geneseo. In the win, Guercio helped lead her team to a .322 hitting percentage. She continued her run with 48 assists and nine more digs in a win over New Paltz in the second game. The New York native won the MVP award of the SUNYAC Tournament while leading Cortland to its 17th SUNYAC title, and first since 2007. For the week, the sophomore setter averaged 11.10 assists and 2.56 digs. The award marks just the third time an athlete from SUNY Cortland has earned Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week accolades, the last being Megan Thurkins nearly a decade ago (Nov. 13, 2000). The Red Dragons are coached by Pam Hoerup.|
