Middlebury College volleyball player Hannah Blackburn (Chapel Hill, N.C.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. The senior setter helped lead the Panthers to the program's fifth NESCAC Championship with a thrilling five-set victory on Sunday over Tufts. The senior setter averaged team-best totals of 8.50 assists per set and 5.50 digs per set to go along with three service aces during Middlebury's three victories. Blackburn posted a career-high 29 digs in Sunday's victory over the Jumbos.
Middlebury returns to action this Friday at an NCAA Regional hosted by SUNY Brockport.
