HIGH POINT, N.C. – King College outside hitter Ashley Pittman has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas women's volleyball Player of the Week during week number eight in the 2011 season.

This is second time this year the Norris, Tenn. native has won the award, taking the honor also in week five. Pittman registered her fifth straight 10 or more kill game against both Belmont Abbey and Virginia Intermont this week. She turned up the offense against The Abbey in the final two sets going a combined 13-for-22 (.591) on the attack and only committing two errors. She finished her evening with 17 kills, hitting at a .263 clip with four digs and two block assists to help led the team to a 3-1 win.
