NKU’S JEREMIAH NAMED AVCA NCAA DIVISION II NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK

 

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Northern Kentucky University’s Jenny Jeremiah has been named the American Volleyball Coaches Association/Sports Imports NCAA Division II National Player of the Week.

Jeremiah, a graduate of Seton High School in Cincinnati, recorded 20 kills, 21 digs and a .333 hitting percentage last Friday night as the Norse defeated No. 16 Northern Michigan, 15-4, 15-10, 15-12, in a battle of teams tied for the No. 1 spot in the Great Lakes Region poll. Jeremiah had eight key kills in the third game as NKU defeated NMU and extended their overall homecourt win streak to 26 consecutive victories.

Jeremiah leads the nation in digs per game (6.01 dpg), and she is also closing in on the NKU all-time record for career kills. Jeremiah currently has 1,439 career kills, and the NKU all-time record is 1,590 by Jenny Huber (1984-87).

The Norse, who are 21-1 overall and ranked No. 4 nationally in the NCAA Division II poll, also own a 46-match win streak against GLVC foes in Regents Hall.
