Schell Named NAIA Attacker-of-the-Week

Dakota State volleyball player, Sydney Schell, was named as the NAIA Attacker-of-the-Week yesterday morning.

Schell was also named to the NSAA  Women’s Volleyball Attacker-of-the-Week on Monday.

She had an explosive week for the Trojans, fueling to a 2-0 record in the NSAA action last week at DSU Fieldhouse. She smashed a career-high 24 kills (6.0 kills per set) to go along with a career-high 26 digs (6.5 digs per set) in DSU’s 3-1 victory over Presentation. She hit .352 in the match.

Schell followed up with another astounding performance in Dakota State’s 3-0 sweep over Mayville State. She posted a double-double of 19 kills (6.3 kills per set) and 14 digs (4.7 digs per set), helping the Trojans hit double digits victories for the 11th time in the last 12 seasons.

For the week, Schell hit an impressive .411 and averaged 6.2 kills and 5.7 digs per set.  She also had four blocks for the week.

Schell became the third player in the last three seasons to be named to NAIA Women’s Volleyball National Player-of-the-Week.

DSU returns to NSAA conference action Friday at Valley City State and at Dickinson State on Saturday.
