Hernandez earns MAC Player of the Week Honors

Senior outside hitter Mallory Hernandez talks to freshman outside hitter Natalie Rejement during CMU's game against Ball State Saturday, Sept. 24 in McGuirk Arena.

As Central Michigan volleyball secured three-straight sweeps last week, senior outside hitter Mallory Hernandez stepped up and led the offensive attack. 

As a result, Hernandez was named Mid-American Conference West Offensive Player of the Week. 

Hernandez put up 41 kills in three games on a .538 hitting percentage along with seven blocks. She ended the three-game stretch on a high note in the second matchup against Miami (Ohio), with 17 kills on a season-high .810 hitting percentage. 

It is her second time receiving MAC Player of the Week honors this season. 

CMU is currently riding a three-game win streak and is 14-8 on the season and 7-4 in MAC play. 

The Chippewas will go on the road for their next matchup when they face off against Akron on Friday.
