Percival named AMC and NCCAA Player of the Week

Amherst’s Lauren Percival, a member of the Mount Vernon Nazarene University women’s volleyball team, was named both the American Mideast Conference Player of the Week and the National Christian College Athletic Association Player of the Week for her performance last week.

Percival, a sophomore setter, led the Lady Cougars to a 2-0 week with a pair of AMC sweeps to extend the team’s winning streak to 10-straight matches. She averaged 11.67 assists, 5.67 digs, 1.00 kills, and 0.67 blocks for the week while posting a .400 attack percentage.

In a sweep of Ursuline College, Percival handed out 29 assists while matching her career high with three blocks and posting 21 digs. Percival, who was the NCCAA National Player of the Week for the second-straight week and the first setter to earn AMC Player of the Week honors this fall, finished the week with 41 assists in a sweep of Houghton (N.Y.) College — the most assists for her in a three-set match this year.
For the season, Percival has played in all 102 sets for MVNU and has posted 1,048 assists. She is tied for the team lead with 33 aces, ranks second on the team with 386 digs, and has registered 27 blocks and 61 kills.

The Lady Cougars, who received votes in the latest NAIA poll, are currently 27-2 overall and 5-0 in the AMC.
