COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—After leading her team to a pair of wins against two of the top teams in the conference over the weekend, senior middle blocker Megan Plourde was named the Mountain West Women’s Volleyball Co-Player of the Week. Plourde shares the honor with Wyoming’s Erin Kirby. The league made the announcement Monday.
The award is the senior’s second of the season and fourth of her career. Just three others Rams have earned four or more career weekly awards: Mekana Barnes (six), Angela Knopf (six) and Courtney Cox (four).
For the week, Plourde averaged 3.43 kills, 1.14 blocks and 0.57 digs per set, while hitting at a .583 clip. She averaged 4.00 points per set over seven total sets.
In Saturday’s win over Fresno State, Plourde also registered her 1,000th career kill. She is now one of three players in program history to reach both the 1,000 kill and 500 block plateaus. She currently holds 595 total blocks, 35 shy of the school’s all-time record.
On Thursday, in a three-set sweep over UNLV, Plourde hit .571, recording nine kills and three blocks. Her first kill gave the Rams their first lead, 7-6 in Set 1, which they kept for the remainder of the set.
Plourde hit .591 in the 3-1 win over Fresno State with 15 kills, one dig and five blocks. In the third set with CSU trailing 16-21, she posted a kill and a block on consecutive points that sparked a 7-2 run that tied the score at 23. The Rams fought off two set-points before winning 27-25 to take a 2-1 lead. In the fourth and deciding set, Plourde downed six kills on six swings.
The Somerset, Wis., native also earned the Mountain West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week award on Sept. 10, and the day following, was named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week.
