SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Sept. 9, 2019) – ETSU senior middle blocker, Kaela Massey (Brentwood, Tenn.) has been named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, the SoCon office announced Monday afternoon. This is her fourth accolade in the last two weeks.
Over the weekend, Massey hit .545 over the course of two matches logging 33 kills in 55 attempts with only three errors. She added five blocks, ten digs and an ace over the course of the weekend.
The senior set a career-high on Friday against Charleston Southern with a .684 hitting percentage (14-for-19). Previously she had never hit above .500 in a match.
In Saturday’s match against Coastal Carolina, Massey logged 19 kills, another career-best. She had 19 serve attempts and no errors in the contest. Her previous career-high was 16 kills vs. Tennessee last season.
Her .684 attack clip is the best by a Buc since AJ Lux hit .625 vs Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
This is Massey’s second SoCon Offensive Player of the Week honor and third SoCon award of her career. She won Defensive Player of the Week in 2016.
The Bucs are back in action this weekend at the UAB Invitational. The Blue and Gold face Alcorn St. on Friday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m.
