Berry Earns ODAC Volleyball Player of the Week Laurel

Courtney Berry '21

FOREST, Va. — The Old Dominion Athletic Conference released its Volleyball Player of the Week on Monday for the week ending September 8, and Washington and Lee junior middle blocker Courtney Berry (Charlottesville, Va./Western Albemarle) earned the honor.

Berry totaled 48 kills (3.20 k/s) on a .488 hitting percentage, as the Generals went 2-1 at the W&L Invitational this past weekend. She also had 13 blocks, 10 digs and four assists over the three matches.

The highlight of Berry's weekend came against Meredith on Saturday, as she ended the match with 18 kills on 23 attempts with only one error for a .739 hitting percentage. It marked the 10th-best single-match performance in W&L history for a player with at least 15 attempts.

Following the tournament, Berry was named to the All-Tournament Team. She currently leads the conference in hitting percentage (.416) and is tied for the lead in total blocks (27). This marks the second straight week the Blue and White has garnered the accolade, as junior outside hitter Brynne Gould (Boone, N.C. / Watauga) nabbed the laurel last week.

The Generals are 6-1 on the season and open ODAC play on Wednesday at Lynchburg at 6:30 pm.
