Maryland volleyball is on a historic run over the last week. For the first time since joining the Big Ten in 2014, which is widely regarded as a top volleyball conference in the country, Maryland has been able to sweep three road matches in a row. The third of these three dominant wins came when the unranked Terps took down the No. 9 Purdue Boilermakers, which also marked the first time Maryland has defeated a top-10 team on the road since joining the conference. Following this run of success, two Maryland players received Big Ten weekly honors yesterday afternoon.
Following stellar offensive performances, junior Sydney Dowler was recognized by the conference as she became the first Maryland player to be named Big Ten Setter of the Week. Redshirt junior middle blocker Anastasia Russ was also honored, being named the conference’s defensive player of the week following a five-block, eight-kill performance against Purdue. Russ currently ranks 11th in the country in blocks per set while her teammate Rainelle Jones sits atop the leaderboard.
