Sept. 16 - Monica Turner, a junior middle blocker for No. 3 University of Minnesota Duluth, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. Playing in the Colorado Premier Challenge that saw the nation's top-5 teams, Turner proved to be one of the more dominant players earning All-Tournament honors. The Bulldogs began the tournament strong with a victory over then-No. 4 BYU-Hawai'i that saw Turner hit .533 with five blocks. She went on to record double-digit kills in the next three matches, highlighted by a 12-kill, .750 hitting percentage performance in the sweep of Metro State. UMD concluded the Tournament against then-No. 2 Tampa (now No. 1) where she tallied another 19 kills on .361 hitting to keep her squad's No. 3 position in the rankings. For the weekend, she hit at a .512 clip and led the team with 11 blocks.


This is the 12th time Minnesota-Duluth has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors, with the previous winner coming from Kate Lange on November 19, 2013. The Bulldogs are coached by Jim Boos.
