LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – For the second time this season the Clarion Golden Eagle volleyball team double-dipped in the conference’s weekly awards release, as Cassidy Snider, as well as Abigail Selfridge, earned Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West Athlete and Defensive Athlete of the Week honors for Oct. 31.
The awards come after the Golden Eagles earned a pair of conference wins on the road last week, closing out a five-match stretch away from home with victories over Pitt-Johnstown and IUP.
Snider averaged 4.86 kills per set and hit .450 over the course of the week, committing just seven errors on 60 attempts compared to 34 kills. She was dominant in the first win of the week, posting 21 kills and a .500 hitting percentage against the Mountain Cats on Tuesday. She also dug out 17 balls for a double-double, and accounted for 24 total points. On Saturday against the Crimson Hawks, Snider recorded 13 kills and a .364 attack percentage.
Snider leads the PSAC with a 4.23 kills per set average, a mark that improves to 4.39 kills per set in conference action.
On Tuesday against the Mountain Cats, Selfridge logged 19 digs, dished out four assists, and posted two service aces as Clarion rebounded from a 1-0 deficit to defeat UPJ in four sets. On Saturday against the Crimson Hawks Selfridge posted 13 digs, three assists, and two aces.
Earlier this year Selfridge recorded the 1,000th dig of her collegiate career and leads the Golden Eagles with an average of 4.28 digs per set this year. She needs 173 more digs the rest of the year to crack the top 10 for a career in program history.
