WINONA LAKE – Grace had Alexa Hill earn yet another honor and Lucy Young garner her first-ever accolade.
Following a personal milestone, Grace volleyball’s Alexa Hill was honored as the Crossroads League Setter of the Week on Monday.
Hill eclipsed 4,000 career assists this week for Grace, becoming the second player in team history to reach that mark. She posted three double-doubles in five matches, including a 57-assist, 17-dig performance against IU-South Bend.
For the week she averaged 3.3 digs per set. She also had 12 kills on a .229 hitting percentage and added five aces.
The Lady Lancers are home Wednesday, welcoming Mt. Vernon Nazarene for a 7 p.m. match at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center.
Lucy Young picked up the first national award of her young career for Grace’s women’s golf team.
Young was named the NCCAA National Golfer of the Week after winning her first collegiate tournament.
The freshman from Greenwood, Ind., was the medalist at the Battle at the Henge. She fired a 74-77 to win the highly competitive tournament by three strokes. Conditions were challenging in the tournament, battling a steady rainfall on Friday and a chilly, windy day of golf on Saturday.
The Lady Lancers’ next tournament will be much warmer. Grace will compete in the 2019 NCCAA National Championships, held in Palm Coast, Fla., from Oct. 21-23.
