YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly volleyball awards on Monday and Salisbury University senior Chelsea Glowacki was named the Player of the Week.
The honor is the first Player of the Week nod for Glowacki in her career and she is the third Sea Gull to win the award this season, following classmates Kelly Vieira and Carley Todd who were tabbed earlier this season.
This week, Glowacki led the Gulls to three wins, including a 3-0 victory at CAC foe the University of Mary Washington. Salisbury also collected two wins in a tri-match on Saturday, topping Rivier University and Virginia Wesleyan College. The Sea Gulls came from two sets down against the Marlins, with Glowacki notching nine of her kills in the final two sets against Virginia Wesleyan.
In the final set against Virginia Wesleyan, Glowacki earned the 1,000th kill of her career; she became just the ninth player in program history to reach that mark.
The Poolesville, Md., native put up 36 kills this week, hitting at a .408 clip, while notching seven blocks (two solo) and 31 digs. The digs are an unlikely statistic to be earned by a player at Glowacki's position, as middle hitters do not often play on the back row, a role she has taken on during her senior season.
Glowacki and the Gulls have a short break before returning to the court, as they will next play on Wednesday, Oct. 10, when they host Johns Hopkins University at Maggs Physical Activities Center. That match is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
