Westminster’s women’s soccer player Abby Rockers and volleyball player Kayla Reeg were named to the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) Players of the Week list on October 6. This is Reeg’s second time receiving this honor.
Rockers, a freshman from Jefferson City, Mo., was named the SLIAC Defensive Player of the week after anchoring the Blue Jay defense that recorded back to back shutouts in conference games. Rockers and the Blue Jay defense stymied Iowa Wesleyan, holding them without a shot in a 3-0 win. Rockers and the Blue Jays then limited Spalding, who entered the game with the conference’s best shot percentage, to just three shots on goal in a 3-0 win.
Reeg, a sophomore from St. Louis, Mo., is this week’s Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week after picking up her duties on the defensive side of the ball in addition to running the Blue Jay offense. Reeg recorded double digit digs in a pair of conference matches while also showing her quickness at the net. Reeg picked up 17 digs in a win over Fontbonne, adding four block assists. She followed with 16 digs in a three set sweep of then undefeated Greenville, adding three block assists. In six sets on the week she finished with 33 total digs, averaging 4.71 digs per set, and seven blocks.
The women’s soccer team hosts Webster University on Wednesday, October 22, at 5:00 pm.
The volleyball team hosts Iowa Wesleyan College on Tuesday, October 21, at 7:00 pm.
