KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Oct. 3, 2017) – After a 3-1 week for the Mariners last week, senior outside hitter Dominique Pope (Silver Spring, Md.) was selected to the Skyline Conference women's volleyball weekly honor roll, the league announced on Monday. Pope helped lead USMMA to a Skyline victory over St. Joseph's-L.I. on Tuesday night and a pair of non-conference sweeps on Saturday over CCNY and Bard, despite a home Skyline loss to Mount St. Vincent on Thursday night.
Pope recorded two double-doubles last week, an 11-kill, 12-dig performance against St. Joseph's-L.I. on Tuesday and a 13-kill, 10-dig night in the neutral site win over City College on Saturday. For the week, she averaged 3.54 kills and 2.69 digs over 13 sets, while hitting at a .284 clip.
The outside hitter currently ranks fourth in the Skyline Conference with 2.98 kills per set. Also ranking among the league's best are sophomore Kyleigh Kappas (Parker, Colo.), who has dished out a conference-best 8.50 assists per set, junior Kate Lefler (Norman, Okla.), who is fifth with 2.96 kills per set and ninth with a .223 hitting percentage and senior Tichina Carmon (Greenville, N.C.), who is the league's third-best blocker with 0.84 blocks per set.
The Mariners are back in action tomorrow night, Wednesday, Oct. 4, when they travel up to Newburgh, N.Y., to take on Skyline opponent Mount St. Mary. First serve is slated for 7 p.m. at the Knights' Kaplan Center. Live stats for the match will be available at this link.
