Sophomore outside hitter Jacoby Sims of the Oglethorpe volleyball team has been named this week's SAAC Female Athlete of the Week for her efforts over the course of the week, including a 3-0 victory over Huntingdon in the team's home opener.
Sims accumulated 34 kills over the three matches and hit .368 for the week. In addition, she pulled 36 digs over the three contests. She recorded 13 kills and hit .381 in the team's win over Huntingdon on Thursday. For the season, she sits fourth in the SAA in total kills (135), tied for fourth in service aces (21), and fourth in points (165.5).
She and the rest of the Stormy Petrels will be back in action this weekend, as they travel to Memphis, Tennessee, to take on Rhodes on Saturday, then continue to Conway, Arkansas, to go against Hendrix on Sunday. Both matches will start at 1 p.m. Eastern.
