ATLANTA - After leading her team to a win in the Maroon Classic over the weekend, Sewanee right side hitter Lilly Reilly has been selected as the Southern Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week.
The team won all five matches played last week, and they are starting 8-1 for the third-best start since 1991.
The freshman was named the Most Outstanding Player at the two-day tournament hosted by Roanoke College in Salem, Va. In four matches, the Lovettsville, Va. native recorded 52 kills on 113 attempts, committing 10 errors for an attack percentage of .371. Earning a double-double in three of the four matches this past weekend, she recorded 3.21 digs per set and added seven service aces.
Including last week's sweep of Covenant, Reilly recorded an attack percentage better than .345 in each of the five matches played.
In 2018, Reilly is fifth in the conference in kills (3.11), third in total kills (87) and sixth in attacking percentage (.282). She also has four double-doubles on the season.
Reilly and the rest of the Tigers return home to open a season-long six-match homestand, beginning Wednesday night when MUW from Columbus, Miss. makes the trek to the Domain.
