Nov. 18 - Jessica Malcolm, a junior outside hitter for Cal State Monterey Bay, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. It was a big week for Malcolm recording at least 20 kills in both matches. In their first match of the week, she smashed 22 kills (.316 hitting percentage) while reaching a double-double with 10 digs in the sweep of Cal Poly Pomona. Those 22 kills broke the program record for kills in a three-set match. She followed that up with another impressive performance against UC San Diego, where in three sets she tallied another 20 kills (hit .292), five digs and four blocks. With those two stellar performances, she became the first player in school history to record 20+ kills in a three-set match three times.
This is the second time a Cal State Monterey Bay student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors, with the other coming from Rheann Fall on September 21, 2010. The Otters are coached by Jody Garry.
