HIGH POINT, N.C. – After helping fuel the team's current seven-match win streak, sophomore outside hitter Summer Kremer was named Conference Carolinas Women's Volleyball Player of the Week for week number four, on Tuesday morning.
Kremer has had the Lady Tornado offense run through her all season long but never more effectively than her recent stretch that has fueled King's current seven-game winning streak. Over four matches, the Mills River, N.C. native has nearly doubled the number of kills from the next nearest teammate (Lauren Willoughby, 29), accumulating 57, averaging 4.07 per set and 14.25 per match. In that time, she has never committed more than six errors in a match and hit .250 or above in three of her last four matches, twice hitting above .325.
She registered 16 kills twice, once against Pfeiffer in three sets where she also hit a match-high .364 and again against Lander. In that contest against Lander, Kremer recorded her first double-double of her career, adding 10 digs to her line. At the net, she collected 4.0 total blocks on one solo and six block assists. She tallied three block assists in King's stateline rivalry game against Virginia Intermont and the rest in a doubleheader against Queens (N.C.) and Lander. In all four games over the past week, Kremer has finished with the most or tied for the most kills in each match and never outdone by a single player on the opposing side of the net.
This is the second consecutive Player of the Week honor earned by King Women's Volleyball. Last week, freshman middle blocker Grace Underwood (Pearland, Texas) was donned the honor.
The Lady Tornado is back in action tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 25 against North Greenville University to continue their current seven-match win streak and remain unbeaten in league play. First service from the Student Center Complex is set for 7 p.m.
