SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – Senior outside hitter Makenzie Thieme (Corona, Calif.) was just named the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Offensive Athlete of the Week announced Monday by the conference office.

Thieme has now earned distinction for this award twice within the past four weeks.  She paced the Poets to a 5-0 week that featured a 3-2 conference win over Redlands, 3-0 victories over DeSales, UC Santa Cruz, and UMass-Boston, and a 3-1 win over Nazareth. Thieme smashed 67 kills, averaging 3.72 kills per set, and added 24 digs during the week, capped off by a double-double effort of 14 kills and 11 digs in the win over Nazareth.

She looks to lead the Purple & Gold into a big week of conference action where they will travel to take on Caltech (Tuesday, October 9 @ 7:00pm) and Cal Lutheran (Saturday, October 13 @ 7:00pm), while hosting Occidental College (Friday, October 12 @ 7:00pm).
