Dig it: Freshman volleyballer Danhof Mariners’ women’s athlete of the week
Freshman libero Michelle Danhof (San Antonio, Texas) has been named the Mariners' women's athlete of the week for her performance in the 3-1 volleyball victory over John Jay College on Thursday.
Danhof contributed a match-high 20 digs and nine service aces as Kings Point defeated the Bloodhounds in New York City.
The Mariners (8-12) dropped the first encounter, 25-17, but swept the final three, 25-15, 25-12, 25-12 against the Bloodhounds (0-17).
John Jay recorded a win in the first set – only its second victory this season -- before the Mariners went on a roll. The Bloodhounds had a 5-1 lead in the second set, but the Mariners bounced back. They turned around a 6-5 deficit into a 14-6 advantage behind the servicing of Danhof.
The Mariners travel to Washington, D.C. this weekend. They will play Juniata and Goucher on Saturday and Moravian on Sunday.
