NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Marnie Streeter was named the Tennessee Sportswriters Association Player of the Week Wednesday morning for her standout weekend in leading Carson-Newman to four match victories over Peach Belt Schools to extend the team's winning streak to five matches.
This plaudit is the fourth time in her career that she is honored with a weekly honor and first since Nov. 5, 2018 when she was named the South Atlantic Conference's Player of the Week.
The Goldvein, Va. native tallied a monster weekend racking up 55 kills and 35 digs over 14 sets posting three matches with double-digit kill days. Overall during her senior campaign she has nine efforts with at least 10 smashes bringing her career total to 64.
At no point during the weekend was Streeter's efficiency below .219 as she opened the weekend with a dozen smashes against Georgia College. Helping C-N hand USC Aiken its first loss of 2019, the outside hitter racked up 15 kills on a .345 hitting clip adding nine digs in a sweep of the Pacers to wrap up the first day of the SAC/PBC Crossover.
On day two, the senior started the day with a season-high 19 kills hitting .311 picking up nine more scoops in a four-set win over Augusta. To end the weekend, Streeter had nine kills and 12 digs in a win over Lander to close out the first 4-0 weekend against the Peach Belt over the six years of the event.
