COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—For the second consecutive week, and third time this season, senior Megan Plourde has earned Mountain West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week honors. The conference made the announcement Monday morning.
Plourde, a native of Somerset, Wis., becomes the second CSU player to win the award in consecutive weeks, and first since Mekana Barnes on Sept. 4 & 10, 2007. She also joins Barnes as the only other Ram to win three awards in one season. In her career, the middle blocker has earned the honor five times, which has been done by just two other players (Barnes, 6; Angela Knopf, 6).
Plourde kept the Rams in contention for a fourth consecutive Mountain West title with three road wins last week. In non-conference action early in the week, she recorded 15 kills and six blocks with a .407 hitting percentage in a 3-1 win at Northern Colorado that earned Head Coach Tom Hilbert win No. 400 with the Rams. Her fifth block of the night was the 600th of her career, making her just the second Ram to total 1,000 career kills and 600 career blocks.
Against Air Force, Plourde posted 11 kills and five blocks while hitting .450 in the 3-0 victory. Plourde wrapped up the week with 10 kills and four blocks with a .615 hitting percentage in a 3-0 win at Boise State. Plourde had several kill-block combinations to win sets throughout the week, but her biggest boost to the Rams was three kills and a block in a 10-2 run in the third set against Boise State when CSU was trailing 18-11. Her third kill of the run gave CSU its first lead of the set, 21-20.
For the week, Plourde averaged 3.60 kills, 1.50 blocks and 0.40 digs per set, while hitting at a .467 clip. She averaged 4.40 points per set over 10 total sets.
