M State had only one volleyball match last week, but freshman setter Sydney Hovland from Underwood made it count with an impressive effort passing the volleyball and earning the MCAC Setter-of-the-Week award.

Hovland tallied an amazing 42 set assists in a key MCAC South win over Ridgewater on Wednesday, October 3. With the victory, M State and Ridgewater sit tied at 5-3 in Conference action, with four divisional contests yet to play.

Sophomore Paige Wallevand from Henning was named the All-Around Player of the Week, leading number one ranked Central Lakes College to a pair of 3-0 wins as they improved their season record to 19-1 and their MCAC North Division mark to 8-0. Wallevand produced 38 assists, 10 kills, 13 digs and 2 blocks, while hitting .364 over the two matches.
